Ill be your mirror.
From Yayoi Kasuma – The Infinity Hall of Mirrors.
‘My idea was to bring out the unknown parts in people by reflecting the mirror of time with my mirror’.
Yayoi Kasuma and Shutter Island. And written out of history.
From The Guardian :
‘After spending the past four decades in a psychiatric hospital, her name written out of art history, Yayoi Kusama became an art-world phenomenon in the age of the selfie.
In the past five years, more than 5 million museum visitors have queued – and queued some more – for a brief glimpse of the work of Yayoi Kusama. The 89-year-old Japanese artist, who for the past 41 years has lived voluntarily in a psychiatric hospital, has had large-scale solo shows of her work in Mexico City, Rio, Seoul, Taiwan and Chile, as well as major touring exhibitions in the US and Europe. Last year, she opened her own five-storey gallery in Tokyo.’
Six Degrees Of Separation.
And the Rule Of Six Handshakes.
‘Six degrees of separation is the idea that all people on average are six, or fewer, social connections away from each other. Also known as the 6 Handshakes rule. As a result, a chain of “a friend of a friend” statements can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps.’
I’ve been in this movie before.
The Rule Of Six.
And on a Tangent Universe – Donnie Darko.
‘To summarize, Donnie Darko begins in what is called the “Primary Universe”. This is by all means, the normal universe. However, shortly after the beginning of the film, Donnie and everything in existence is transported to the “Tangent Universe”, a duplicate universe where abnormal and paranormal events transpire. This transfer is not shown when it happens, it simply occurs. The movie’s setting transitions from the original universe to this other one without any clear indication of it.’
It’s a weird place.
