Yayoi Kusama

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.

Director Jordan Peele’s Alternate Ending to “Get Out” (Leaked Video Clip)

Spoiler Alert: Do not click below if you haven’t seen “Get Out” yet! I wasn’t completely mind-blown by this movie but I really enjoyed it and I’m excited to see what director Jordan Peele makes next (apparently his next “social thriller” is slated for 2019). I don’t want to say too much but I thought the end of the film was unexpected and satisfying. Now an alternate version has leaked and it’s interesting because it’s also not what I thought was going to happen. Watch the full clip below.

Ticket Giveaway: Canal180’s 8-Day Creative Camp in Portugal

180 Creative Camp is an 8-day media arts academy hosted by Canal180 in Abrantes, Portugal, from July 2nd to 9th. The event provides a unique environment for participants and invited artists to exchange experiences, learn and create together. I’ll be headed out there to do a talk at the camp and more importantly hang with the participants. It’ll be my first time to Portugal so I’m looking forward to exploring Abrantes as well.

Tickets are still available! Also if you happen to live in Abrantes I believe there are special terms for you to participate. Head over to 180.camp for more info and to see the list of speakers and workshops announced so far (more on the way).

Now for the really good news, we have a full package ticket (350 € value) to give away to one of you, which includes participation in the 8-day camp, accommodations and food. All you have to do is share a link to your website or Instagram in the comments below. Click the link below and scroll down to the bottom of this post and use the Disqus comment widget.
