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.

Collection of 80 High-Res Textless Movie Posters

textless-movieposters30

Not sure how this exists??? Someone has uploaded a collection of 80 high-resolution film posters stripped of any text. Can’t tell if they have next-level Photoshop skills or some other kind of voodoo that made this possible. In any case, thank you, Internet. Have a look at them all here. I included a bunch of my favourites below (there’s a common thread to the ones I picked).

*Edit – just discovered that the link I posted was actually a repost and this was originally posted by Reddit user Join_You_In_The_Sun, so I’ve updated the link in the post.

Watch: “The Junction: A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs”

Here’s episode #3 of our animated series for Red Bull Music Academy, and it’s a peek into the pop culture-filled minds of Fool’s Gold co-founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Hopefully you’ll find it to be an enjoyable mix of the absurd and the profound (would love to see these two start their own podcast).

The visuals here are a collaborative effort from animator Brandon Blommaert and illustrator Josh Holinaty. The sound design and original music were created by Luigi Allemano.

Make sure you hit full screen on the episode above or watch it nice and big over on Booooooom TV.

Stay tuned for the rest of the episodes! If you missed the first two, watch Episode #1: Chilly Gonzales and Peaches, and watch Episode #2: Kaytranada and River Tiber.
