This week's art deep purple inspired fashion post looks to the saturated optical effects of Yayoi Kusama, whose soft sculptures and installations influenced artists such as AndyWarhol and Claes Oldenburg. Although her work was forgotten after departing the New York art scene in the early 1970s, she's now acknowledged as one of the most important living artists to come out of Japan . Known for immersive artworks, her current exhibiton at the Tate Modern features a series of rooms covered in psychedelic polka dots, mirrors and more. The Infinity Mirrored room constructed just for this exhibit consists of hundreds of low-energy LED lights reflected by wall-to-wall mirrors, a spectacular spacial void brimming with dazzling sparkling lights. The Yayoi Kusama exhibit at the Tate Modern will close on June 5, 2012.
