Dotty Infinity: Yayoi Kusama

If there is one woman I admire, it is Yayoi Kusama, an amazing artist. Nine decades and still going strong! She is cooperating with Louis Vuitton at the moment (which might become very interesting) and further she has done practically everything one possibly can do in one lifetime. But what I admire most is the fact she turned what could have been a defect into an asset. As a child, she started hallucinating, and these hallucinations often featured polkadots and patterns of polkadots. This strange condition enables her today to make the strangest works of art, that really make you stop and stare. At the moment she lives voluntarily in a psychiatric hospital close to her atelier.

Yayoi Kusama sees the world differently, but she made an asset out of that.

About quantumphysica

My name is QuantumPhysica The Insane, but you can call me QP. I am insane, admitted to a mental hospital in Belgium, and waiting for a decent diagnosis at the moment. Once I was a physics student with goals in life and what more; now I'm simply the patient of Room 93. Ever wondered what life is like in the psychiatric ward? I'll tell you everything you ever wanted to know... I am... particularly twitchy of personality. But I also am genuinely interested in everything. There is nothing that doesn't interest me, really. Everything, from quantum computers to fashion and cars to traveling... I also give advice. On anything. No taboos whatsoever. And I make lists of things...

One Response to Dotty Infinity: Yayoi Kusama

  1. Thank you for posting this. It is really wonderful that you share the same passion for the repetitive and the sublime. What a treat! Sanity is only a word, a restriction, a trap.You are many more things than a patient or a body in a room, you are innumerable things more. You are interested, and as they say, Einstein was 99% curiosity. Strong curiosity = strong willingness for exploration = juicy imagination. Don’t succumb to a label. Much love, Matt from Olympia.
