Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama - has been obsessed with dots and infinity for her entire career, an inspiration she attributes directly to her hallucinations. In an attempt to share her experiences, she creates installations that immerse the viewer in her obsessive vision of dots or infinitely mirrored space.
What if superheroes fought our wars for us?

How would you react if your walked into the produce section of your local market and encountered a deer or a rabbit eyeing the veg? Indonesia-based photographer Agan Harahap has created a wonderfully whimsical, yet also poignant, series of photos entitled Garden Fresh, depicting wild animals in grocery stores, perhaps browsing the aisles for their favourites foods just as you would.
Agan Harahap describes his work:
“It is like a fable about a journey undertaken by the animals when they venture into our daily lives. The animals are confronted by a new reality that is in conﬂict with their natural habits and habitats… The animals are stripped of their own identities and are used as empty vessels to be ﬁlled with the human drama of parody, satire and allegory. We cannot help but see animals from a human vantage point, and therefore in some sense all the works in the present exhibition are actually about us.”
