Literary synopsis *Violet Obsession* (*Sumire kyohaku*) describes the experiences of a young girl, persecuted by her mother, who discovers she can converse with flowers as agents of the universe. Kusama's protagonist expresses gratitude for the physiological suffering she experiences: ''There are ten billion bubbles inside my body. Which is precisely why I feel at one with the ten billion stars that twinkle in the heavens, and why I talk to the clouds made up of ten billion tiny drops of water, and why I hear the voice of the wind carrying ten billion atoms.''
