I went to one of her interactive exhibits some years ago. Viewers were given primary colored stickers and invited to put them on any surface in the room. Most surfaces were already covered and we simply started a new layer.

“A polka-dot has the form of the sun, which is a symbol of the energy of the whole world and our living life, and also the form of the moon, which is calm. Round, soft, colorful, senseless and unknowing. Polka-dots become movement ... Polka dots are a way to infinity.”

—Yayoi Kusuma, in Manhattan Suicide Addict [24]
