| Hero | Yayoi Kusama's Fireflies on the Water

See the video here 

Yayoi Kusama’s depictions of seemingly endless space have been a central focus of her artistic career. Kusama’s Fireflies on the Water (2002)—with its carefully constructed environment of lights, mirrors, and water—is one of the outstanding examples of this kind of installation, which creates a space in which individual viewers are invited to transcend their sense of self.
Fireflies on the Water, a work in the Whitney’s collection, is being shown in conjunction withYayoi Kusama, which is on view on the fourth floor July 12 through September 30, 2012.
