Fireflies on the Water (2002) by Yayoi Kusama. Installation made of 150 lights, mirrors, and water.

Yayoi Kusama’s obsession with the depiction of infinite space has held a central focus within her artistic career. Fireflies on the Water (2002)—with its controlled environment of lights, mirrors, and pool of water—is one of the outstanding examples of these installations that permit the individual viewer to suspend one’s sense of self and accompany the artist on her ongoing journey of self-obliteration.

Fireflies on the Water (2002), by Yayoi Kusama. Fireflies on the Water isan installation made of 150 lights, mirrors and water. It offers an out-of-this-world experience from the confines of a modest room paneled with mirrors and adorned with 150 tiny beads of light deliberately suspended throughout the compact space. Upon entering the room, there’s an illusionary effect that gives the impression of infinite space reflected on all sides and in the two inches of water that flows below.

French artist Serge Salat invites visitors to take a journey through endless layers of space, decked out with cubic shapes, panels of mirrors, shifting lights and music.
