The Obliteration Room by artist Yayoi Kusama
“The Obliteration Room”, a brilliant installation by Yayoi Kusama. The Queensland Gallery of Modern Art was made to look like the interior of an Australian home, only everything was painted completely white. Over the course of two weeks, children were given thousands of coloured stickers and set loose on the gallery space. The result is incredible.

  • That is really amazing!

  • ami

    She did it again, AMAZING! This might be one of my fav works she’s done. 草間彌生さん素敵。

  • Bigbadjohn

    You cant not like that. Amazing.

  • sr

    I like this a lot…

  • Really cool. I wonder how they got all the stickers to be aligned so perfectly though.

  • Emily

    The stickers aren’t aligned; anyone can put the stickers absolutely anywhere. I went to this exhibition when I was a kid and again, last week. It’s so much fun and reveals this cool psychology about why people put their stickers where they do.

    • Claire

      Where is this exhibition ??

  • AAAAH COLOURS EVERYWHERE AAAAAAAAAAAH

  • I’ve always loved Yayoi’s work, but this… this is the raddest thing I’ve EVER SEEN! Makes me wish I’d thought of it….

  • Even before seeing the full progression, I was thinking how I needed to completely destroy the white tranquility.

    Fantastic.

  • Brian

    This is fantastic. Jeff, I don’t know if you read all these comments but I would love it if you could put a share button at the bottom of the posts that would allow me to instantly reblog it on tumblr.

“15/20” by Photographer Neta Dror

 

In 2011, Tel Aviv-based photographer Neta Dror photographed 6 Israeli teens, returning 5 years later to photograph them each again. Now in their 20s, Dror notes that the biggest change isn’t physical but emotional:

“It was incredible to see how differently they presented themselves to me and to the camera: all grew more confident and were less willing to expose themselves. It was clear they were now more aware of who they are and what part of themselves they wanted to show.”

Click here to see our previous post of Dror’s work. More images from “15/20” below.

“Copy Kitty” by Illustrator Kyung Me

Illustrator Kyung Me explores the various ways we construct false identities in romantic relationships with a series of drawings surrounding a character named Copy Kitty. Going to great lengths to be accepted and adored, Copy Kitty gradually descends into a vortex of fantasy and paranoia. Check out more images from Me’s elaborate narrative series below.
