I really like Kusama’s work. The way she uses mirrors to make the space larger than it is. I also like how she uses her art as a type of therapy. 

Dots Obsession - Infinity Mirrored Room (2008). The dots are derived from her hallucinations, and the paintings thus have a theraputic function, transferring her experience onto canvas. The installations, meanwhile reconstruct that experience in real space. Indeed, these spaces are highly hallucinatory..” 
Bonham-Carter, C. Hodge, D (2009). The Contemporary Art Book. London: Goodman. p137. 

The effects created by using the mirrors are really interesting. As she intended it, it appears that you’re in an infinite space. I like the use of mirrors even though it’s relatively simple.
