Last week I had the super fun experience of getting to go to the Yayoi Kusama Infinity Mirrors exhibit currently at the Seattle Art Museum. And it was So. Cool. I went with my co-worker Charlae and we had so much fun popping into each experience. I was surprised to find out that the rooms were actually more like large boxes with each exhibit inside. You are given 30 seconds in each room before one of the attendants opens the door and kicks you out, but just like a ride at Disneyland, you can get back in line and go again. Thirty seconds felt like five, and one of the attendants told us (somewhat judgily—is that a word? You get what I mean though.) that it feels a lot longer if you’re not taking photos. I wanted to be like, bitch have you seen this?? There is no way I’m NOT taking pictures of it! I will admit it was nice when we did an exhibit a second time and I could put my phone down and just soak up the mesmerizing world of Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrors. But I don’t regret getting these sick shots! Also, shout out to my Google Pixel phone, which I used to shoot all these photos since it does a stellar job in low-light conditions. You can check out Yayoi’s info page to see when an exhibit may be coming to a city near you. Just be ready to refresh your browser—tickets sell out fast and museum websites often crash due to the high traffic when tickets are released!
