‘Walking Piece’ (1966) is a series of colour photo slides on a projector. It documents Kusama’s feelings as an Asian female artist in the male-dominated New York art scene. The pictures have been clicked using fish eye lenses with the harsh city landscape as a foreboding backdrop. Kusama’s figure contrasts against the scenery, she’s wearing a bright floral patterned Kimono, and holding an umbrella decorated with flowers, thus making her look alienated from the city.

Kimsooja — To Breathe - A Mirror Woman, installation in the Palacio de Cristal, Madrid, 2006
Through the use of minimal elements - a translucent layer of diffraction that covers the whole of the Palacio’s glass structure and a mirror that spreads over the floor as well as the sound of her breathing - Kimsooja submerges the visitor in an experience of transfiguration, inviting them to experiment with their mind and their senses and activate their sensorial perceptions and imagination.
