24 What Happens When You Give Kids Thousands of Stickers










In December, at an inter-active installation for the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, artist Yayoi Kusama created a brilliantly white environment (a blank canvas) where over the course of two weeks children who visited were given thousands of coloured dot stickers and were invited to collaborate in the transformation of the space.  The installation, entitled The Obliteration Room is part of Kusama’s Look Now, See Forever exhibition that runs through March 12 in Brisbane. (Via stuart addelsee, sccart, and heybubbles and colossal).  Via The New Domestic.

I'd be curious to see pics of the areas were they DIDN'T stick the stickers, or where there are only a few (e.g. round the skirting board... and what does that say about the way kids think and what they do. Interesting stuff!

Breath taking! I wonder what it would feel like to walk around. I wonder if it's very disorientating?

Fantastic. It looks like at some point, aesthetics were given over to a philosophy of "don't stop," embracing chaos. I think it would be a little overwhelming, albeit glorious, to stand inside.

I hope someone had a stop-motion camera set up somewhere to document!

Jessie said...

Unreal!! I can't decide if I'd rather be the photographer documenting the progress or the kid who got to put the first stickers up!

I just launched a new blog today! www.theloudandclear.com

One day, when I have my own home, I want to do my son's room like that. Just give him some art supplies and let him enjoy ^.^
