Dots Obsession 1998 - Yayoi Kusama
Kusama is an obvious example of an artist who manipulates the room to create a contained alternative reality.
In ‘Dots Obsession’ she fills the room with inflatable shapes covered in her iconic polka dot patterns. In the left hand image we see that Kusama has used mirrors, another iconic aspect that features in her ‘Forever Rooms’.Kusama’s rooms are all consuming; the mind and imagination cannot escape from the image of the polka dots within the walls of these spaces.
