Infinity Room by Yayoi Kusama. Kusama uses hundreds of LEDs to create what looks like an endless evening of multi-chromatic fireflies, or a galaxy full of Christmas lights, or a blizzard of glowing snow over a city of skyscrapers. As simple as the effect may be—just mirrors and lights—the photos alone are a hypnotic, ephemeral tease of infinity.
