Although the Filled with the Brilliance of Life art installation looks stunningly surreal, it is not fabricated in any way. The exhibit's rooms are lined with real illuminated lights, giving the illusion that millions of fireflies or christmas lights have been unleashed in each. As impressive as the artist's recent Obliteration Room project, this installation was created with her own hands and not with the help of countless little children.

Showing at the Tate Modern in London, England, the Filled with the Brilliance of Life installation was created by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama. Famously known for living in psychiatric institution for the last four decades, the project highlights her obsession with dots and infinity, which she attributes directly to her hallucinations. The Tate Modern is also exhibiting Kusama's sculptures, paintings and videos.
