06 March, 2016This video of Yayoi Kusama's Fireflies on the Water doesn't do justice to how it truly made it's viewer feel. Kasuma's works will always have a special place in my heart. I left the Whitney in 2002 with a newly acquired (almost visceral) understanding of my views of life and art. I learned then that one does not allow the other. Rather, both are symbiotic and mutually necessary. This revelation kickstarted my love of interactivity in art and comfortingly reminds me (quite often) to live in the moment.
For if we allow it, each moment can be art.
