For the avant-garde art lovers out there, the Yayoi Kusama installation in Norway is something you should definitely check out. Featuring the work of the world-famous Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, the ‘Love Transformed into Dots’ piece examines love through pink balls and polka-dots.

The ‘Love Transformed into Dots’ installation is part of Yayoi Kusama’s dot-inspired series called ‘Dots Obsession’ and features her signature symbol, the polka-dot. Inspired by her childhood dreams and hallucinations, the installation features tons of
circular balloon-like pink lanterns covered in black dots. In the background is a projected image of dot-covered Yayoi feasting on flowers.

‘Love Transformed into Dots’ was inspired by the nightmares Yayoi use to have as a child. The hazy colors and shapes used are a clear nod to these bad dreams Yayoi had. This Yayoi Kusama installation is certainly a whimsical journey through a dream-like state.
