i just spent way too much time playing with this

Ok. For those of you unfamiliar with origami diagrams, dash-dash-dash lines mean valley fold (points away from you) and dash-dot-dash lines mean mountain fold (points towards you). For me, dot-dot-dot lines mean…
No matter how long the slinky is, the bottom of the slinky will stay still (hover) until the top reaches it. Even if the slinky is over 1000 feet long.
Fucking hypnotic. Physics, how the fuck does it work?

If you’ve ever wanted to step into a room that feels like it goes on into infinity, well, now you can. At Tate Modern in London from February 9 to June 5, 2012, you’ll find a space filled with mirrors and small LED lights, which change color. Infinity Mirror Room – Filled with the Brilliance of Life is by famous Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, an 82-year-old woman who has spent most of the last forty years of her life as a voluntary resident in a psychiatric hospital. Telegraph says that soon after “she became a household name, her signature polka dot patterns covering everything from department stores to buses.” (If the name sounds familiar, she was also the one behind The Obliteration Room at the Gallery of Modern Art, Brisbane which we wrote about here.)
This new installation, created specifically for her retrospective at Tate Modern, is the artist’s largest mirrored room to date. Vogue UK describes it as “suspending the viewer in space.”
You can get a preview of the show on Guardian’s website. In addition to a sequence of rooms, the exhibition will feature many of Kasuma’s artworks in various media including painting, sculpture, and film.
WHY HAS NOBODY DONE THIS BEFORE?
Going to London in April. Yesssss.
Look like I need to visit the Tate again :D

For nearly a decade since the late 1970s artist Takanori Aiba worked as a maze illustrator for Japanese fashion magazine POPYE. The following decade he worked as an architect and finally in 2003 decided to merge the two crafts—the design of physical space and the drawing of labyrinths—into these incredibly detailed tiny worlds. Using craft paper, plastic, plaster, acrylic resin, paint and other materials Aiba constructs sprawling miniature communities that wrap around bonsai trees, lighthouses, and amongst the cliffs of nearly vertical islands.
Always love things like this <333
