Last month I had the opportunity to go to a Yayoi Kusama exposition here in Mexico. It was the Infinite Obsession installation and it was being exhibited at the Museo Tamayo in Mexico City. I tried going on a weekend and it was impossible, I wasn't the only one excited about Kusama's spots, it seemed that the whole city was as well. So one quiet Tuesday morning I ventured out to visit it and after about an hour of waiting in line I was inside Kusama's world. It is amazing what impact polka-dots can have, so instead of explaining my experience, which was amazing, here are some photos and a quote of Kusama herself:
''A polka-dot has the form of the sun, which is a symbol of the energy of the whole world and our living life, and also the form of the moon, which is calm. Round, soft, colorful, senseless and unknowing. Polka dots become movement… Polka dots are a way to infinity.''
