In her autobiography, Yayoi Kusama writes that she had hallucinations even as a child. She has said that these experiences made her feel like she was "returned to infinity, to eternal time and absolute space".In these hallucinations, the polka dots appeared that are so characteristic of Kusama´s oeuvre. These polka dots gradually spread to entire rooms and eventually into landscapes. In recent decades, she has used the polka dots in installations in urban spaces all over the world.
Wen Kusama´s art includes trees and nature, the poetic ans psychedelic elements in her infinity vision blends with nature´s own mystery. Ascension of Polka Dots on the trees is a work she has previously installed in several cities.
