Throughout her 70-year career, Japanese artist and almighty priestess of polka dots Yayoi Kusamahas created a series of rooms mirrored, enclosed spaces that use water, twinkly lights, bespeckled balloons, soft phallic sculptures and pumpkins to prompt viewers to contemplate the idea of the infinite universe.

And, from what weve gleaned, the infinite universe is very photogenic.

On Friday, Feb. 24, the stunningtraveling exhibitionYayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors opens at theHirshhorn Museumin Washington, D.C.,featuring six of Kusamas iconic, infinite spaces.

Viewers are encouraged to enter each space alone, with approximately 45 seconds to take it in once inside. Its probably a smart idea to sign up for free, timed passes to minimize time spent waiting in lines the exhibition is expected to be a blockbuster.

Since you wont have boundless time to photograph yourself in the seemingly boundless spaces, youd be wise to head into the rooms ready to take in the work and take a photo in an expedient manner. And know this: snapping a selfie in the dizzying space is not disrespectful toward Kusamas mission. In fact, a photo is a simple way to harness the spirit of her rooms by multiplying yourself, immersing yourself in your environment, and becoming an infinite image yourself.

Stay tuned for our full review of the exhibition. In the meantime, take a digital walk through the show below, andread more about the exhibition here.
