I got a sneak peek of the Infinity Mirrors room in Chicago a few weeks before I left for South America and it definitely did not disappoint! The installation by Japanese artist, Yayoi Kusama, is in the Windy City for the first time at the new wndr museum in the West Loop. I’ve never gotten to see any of her rooms on any of my travels (I’ve tried, but couldn’t get tickets!) so getting to experience the space solo (well, me and Melissa) before the museum construction was even complete was a pretty unforgettable experience. (And this dress with a million little dots was perfect for the occasion!)
“Our Earth is only a polka dot among the million stars in the cosmos.”
– Yayoi Kusama
The room is called “Let’s Survive Forever” and is a kaleidoscopic, mirrored room covered in glass orbs. Most of her other Infinity Rooms have been limited to a small platform to stand on, but this room is meant to be explored and the art fully experienced. There are a few tickets on sale now so be sure to snag yours to check it out!
