Yayoi Kusama @ TATE

Went to see the Yayoi Kusama exhibit at the TATE Modern last week, really enjoyed seeing her variety and scale of work and its development over her decades of producing art. While not necessarily relevant to my Unit 7 project thematically, I was really impressed by the hypnotic, psychedelic effect of Kusama's repetition of smaller elements, especially in the "Infinity Mirrored Room" space where hanging neon lights seemed to span infinitely in every direction. The endless amount of repetition and aggregation of smaller components (and precise mark making in the Infinity Net series) gave off a real sense of obsession and care that was quite humbling, especially given the scale of many of the pieces.
