To infinity and beyond! Well not actually. But in the Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrored Room — The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away at The Broad Museum in Los Angeles, you are allowed the opportunity to feel as though you are in a room that continues for infinity. In a small room, water covers the floor leaving only a small exposed platform for you to stand. The walls are covered in mirrors with LED lights hanging from the ceiling. After the door closes, you are left alone for 45 seconds. The brightness of the lights slowly change and your reflection seems to continue forever. To capture the moment you can even take a selfie like the one I did!
