The whole room is made out of mirrors and millions of LED lights hanging from the ceiling, at the different heights. The room is a form of a cube and this makes it even more unusual, as the light goes from everywhere, so you can only see the light and mirrors. It gives an idea of infinity and space. The artist believed that this is how the cosmos looks like, for her, this represents an endless cycle of death and life.
When creating this artwork Yayoi Kusama was playing with forms, shapes and scale. The concept was that, when entering the room, everyone should forget about time, generation, culture and region and just think about the mysteries of cosmos and life. I not only like the concept and idea of the artwork, but I also like the installation itself, as it gives an idea of something magical and unexplainable.
