The Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama has been acknowledged as one of the most important living artists in world. The exhibition of Yayoi Kusama X Botanic Garden of New York (NYBG), titled as Cosmic Nature, “reveals her lifelong fascination with the natural world, beginning with her childhood spent in the greenhouses and fields of her family’s seed nursery.” (cited from the official website of NYBG). In this project, we select three most famous installations of Kusama as the photo props. We are aimed to extend Kusama’s concepts on our nature from art installations to the fashion.
