The Obliteration Room - Sticker Art

Image from PSFK

The Obliteration Room, a piece created by Yayoi Kusama for the Brisbane Gallery of Modern Art in Australia, is a reconstructed environment where the walls and everything inside the room is painted white. The artist gave thousands of colored dot stickers to invited children to help transform the space into a piece of art.

The exhibit site reads:

As with many of Kusama’s installations, the work is disarmingly simple in its elemental composition; however, it brilliantly exploits the framework of its presentation. The white room is gradually obliterated over the course of the exhibition, the space changing measurably with the passage of time as the dots accumulate as a result of thousands and thousands of collaborators.

Here are more pictures of the exhibit. I wish we were in Brisbane!
