Yayoi Kusama Infinity Mirrors: An Immersive Design Experience
We recently had the opportunity to visit the Yayoi Kusama Infinity Mirrors exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum. We treated our Seattle team to an afternoon of awe and inspiration as we stepped away from our desks to participate in the coveted experience.
The exhibit features five mirrored rooms which visitors may step into with small groups for only 20 to 30 seconds. Between rooms, the exhibit includes a collection of Kusama’s other works, from her Accumulations to the Obliteration Room. See our favorites from the experience…
I loved the conceptual and interactive nature of the exhibit. It was such an inventive concept compared to traditional exhibits that are simply observed. I also loved examining the detail of the art itself and imagining what kind of mind could conceive and produce such features. It was amazing to think of the woman behind the art as you viewed and participated in it.

I appreciated the interactive and immersive elements of the exhibit. You really felt like you were becoming a part of the Kusama’s various life events and inspirations as you reflected upon the connection of your own experiences in each room.

I love how each piece casts the viewer as the subject and encourages photography and social media use. It’s such a new way of thinking about how art is viewed and experienced since many exhibits and museums ban or discourage photography. I love the recognition of the role social media plays in today’s world and how users are encouraged to engage with the pieces and take and share photos.
