Yayoi Kusama's Glass House Takeover: Go Behind the Polka-Dot Scenes

"There is basically nothing to worry about," said the artist Yayoi Kusama of how now, at 87, she sends teams from her studio and gallery to do her site-specific installations in places far from her home in Japan. Her latest target? The Glass House in New Canaan, Connecticut, where she turned Philip Johnson's see-through structure into a riot of polka dots for "Dots Obsession." See the installation process play out via a time-lapse video by Matthew Placek, here.
