Today's Inspiration- Fireflies on the Water

by - Thursday, July 17, 2014

I just love Yayoi Kusama so much, because walking into this installation is like walking into heaven, into magic, into fireworks reflecting on the water. Representations of water thus far have been more straightforwardly mimetic, but I think you still see where this is going without hearing the title (especially in person). I am too well-trained basically to be moved all that often by art (especially contemporary art), but I just think Fireflies on the Water captures too many good things at once. Today has turned out to be a bit of a mixed bag, so this magical thing goes out to those who need it.
