Sometimes an idea is so profound in its simplicity as to be nothing short of genius. It’s definitely a smack the forehead, why didn’t I think of this, moment. Recently I learned of an art installation called “The Obliteration Room” held at the Queensland Art Gallery in Queensland, Australia by the internationally renowned artist Yayoi Kusama.
The artist created this stark space
provided children with stickers
and after two weeks ended up with this . . .
then this . . .
and this . . . awesome!
I love the interactive nature of this art installation. It is amazing to see this stark white space explode with color all due to the imagination and frenetic energy of thousands of stickers and two weeks worth of children coming through. It’s such a simple yet stunningly genius idea to involve the children in the creation of the art. It literally changes with every sticker placed, making every child an artist affecting the overall installation. It also makes a great idea for use in kids’ rooms. Use basic furniture and let them create their own space with stickers and color.
