A Time-Laps film by Dots Obsession – Alive, Seeking for Eternal Hope is a special installation for a limited time, September 1 through 26, where Kusama has created an “infinity room” experience with the Glass House itself covered with polka dots. Visitors who attend the exhibition during this period will be offered the unique experience to simultaneously see the world through the eyes of both Philip Johnson and Yayoi Kusama. The Glass House’s window walls and doors allow the artist to create a one-of-a-kind signature “infinity room.” The polka dots directly engage the architecture of the Glass House, complementing its structure and aesthetics, breathing new life into the house. For Kusama, the polka dot represents an individual, its own universe. Similarly, Philip Johnson created his own private universe at the Glass House, sculpting every aspect of landscape experience into his own universe.

I produced Architecture & Influence as part the Philip Johnson Glass House Oral History Project for use on their web site and in their visitor center. Working with Project Director, Dorothy Dunn, we interviewed Norman Foster, Michael Graves. Charles Gwathmey, Richard Meier, Jaquelin T. Robertson, Richard Rogers, Vincent Scully, and Robert A. M. Stern–individuals for whom Philip Johnson was mentor, sponsor, and friend. I was responsible for selecting excerpts from the oral history interviews, selecting imagery, and scripting and editing the program in collaboration with Dorothy Dunn.
