If you are on a quest for immersive art, you will be very pleased with this year art exhibitions. From the queen of immersive art Yayoi Kusuma to the newbies like … , artists use immersive art to make us dive into their world and feel intense emotions.
Here are few ongoing experiences you will find in LA.
The unique Infinity Mirrored Room by Yayoi Kusuma immerses you in the middle of the starts and you can feel the soul of those stars that are million light years away from our planet. You have a feeling that you are disconnected from the world and you are just floating in the space with the stars.
Another of her permanent exhibition at the museum is the Longing for Eternity. You will observe from the outside of that box through porthole-like windows, a dazzling, LED light–filled hexagonal chamber. The result is a distinctly visual immersion, and a counterpoint to the rooms that envelope the viewer.
Through extreme repetition, both types of Kusama’s Infinity Mirror Rooms create phenomenological experiences that provoke a sense of boundlessness and transcendence.
Another of Yayoi Kusuma’s immersive room can be experienced at the Marciano Art Foundation. It is called WITH ALL MY LOVE FOR THE TULIPS, I PRAY FOREVER, 2011. You will be immersed for a few minutes in a bright red polka dot room with the oversized flower-potted tulips made from fiberglass- reinforced plastic and that are painted with the same red polka dots as the floor, ceiling, and walls. “She created here an immersive viewing experience while at the same time diminishing the appearance of depth. This work exemplifies Kusama’s singular vision and her distinctive gift for drawing viewers into the work on a deeply visceral level. Kusama currently lives and works in Tokyo.”
