DIYable art: the obliteration room


OH MY GOD. this is genius. artist Yayoi Kusama’s installation for the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art is probably one of the greatest things i’ve ever seen.  she created an entire living room environment – painting every wall, chair, table, and piano with white paint.  the room was essentially a giant canvas, waiting for visitors to stick colored dots anywhere and everywhere.

over the course of two weeks, children visiting the museum were given thousands and thousands of colored stickers and were told to participate in the installation by sticking the dots anywhere they like.

the Obliteration Room houses only locally sourced furniture and decorations.  in the words of the artist, the room should be “obliterated” with stickers.  installations that are interactive is Kusama’s main focus in her work.

 my question is how did they get those stickers on the ceiling?

DIYable alert! do this smaller scale by framing off a section of wall in a kid’s room where they can stick stickers!
