The Obliteration Room by Yayoi Kusama
Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, with the help of some little helpers, has taken her iconic dots to a whole new level.
As part of her exhibition “Look Now, See Forever,” showing at The Queensland Art Gallery (Australia) through March 11, 2012, Yayoi Kusama has created an installation titled The Obliteration Room. After creating what was essentially a blank canvas of white chairs, tables and sofa, the eccentric artist invited children visiting the museum to collaborate with her by giving them thousands of colored dot stickers and granting them artistic freedom to do what they like with them. The results are, well, pretty obliterating.
