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.

    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.

    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.
