I visited the Infinity Mirrors Exhibit by Yayoi Kusama at Hirshhorn today.
I showed up for the day-pass line at about 9:10 AM. The line was combined with the other line, and slowly started moving at 9:35. I finally got my pass at about 11:20, over two hours after I arrived.
Two hours of my time are worth money. I would rather pay a fair price for a ticket (maybe $10) at a specific time by credit card or Paypal and not have a hassle. The Monday noon ticket giveway times out before most users can get ticket.
Before I got in at 1 PM, I encountered Chris the Mockingbird.
Later I encountered him in the garden and he seemed to recognize me. Mockingbirds are musicians. But the males do not have plumage color that gives them the obvious external trappings of manhood. They seem to have made some sort of sacrifice.
In the museum. there were five rooms with the last one temporarily closed. You go into the room and have 20-30 seconds. The effect is to see many copies of yourself as in the movie “Interstellar”, where in the end people are saved by creating their own little tesseracts.
You’re not supposed to use flash, and I apologize for one shot; I thought I had turned it off on my Canon Power Shot but it went off.
There was also artwork simulating life on other planets.
Are these plants or animals?
And there was a piano room.
