Gleaming lights of souls
I came across this whilst surfing the net. It’s an art installation called “Gleaming Lights of the Souls” by the Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama where visitors are invited to enter a tardis-like chamber, when inside the small interior unfolds into a magical encounter with infinity. The small room is mirrored on all four sides, with a shallow pool of water on the floor. A changing collection of small LED lights hung from the ceiling produce a countless chain of endless reflections, transforming the small cube into an unearthly place. I really like the idea and think this could be another installation like the Eye and I project.
