Louis Vuitton brings us a short film by director KT Auleta that pays homage to Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Room and its concept of self-obliteration. This idea of getting lost within a sea of ourselves and, in this case, being dots or lights is interesting. An excerpt from the Louis Vuitton website says this:
Infinity can be made up of a cloud of hypnotic dots; it is also a prism through which Art is reflected. Literature, photography or painting, each have made it a previous leitmotiv through time. While we attempt to understand artists fascinated by abstraction and void, or whether we just feel the immensity of space, infinity continues to be tinged with electric anxiety. It reduces us to the tiny circle of our humanity; a dot among others in the universe.
A little too much thinking for this time of the day, but interesting nonetheless. Also, the short is beautiful. Louis Vuitton’s art/design department never ceases to amaze me. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a window display that I didn’t fall in love with instantly.
