Thousands of kids and adults coved a qhite room with colored stickers.

An artist once built a completely white room and let thousands of kids and adults cover it with colored stickers.

The current installation of Yayoi Kusama’s popular interactive children’s project has taken the work to a new scale, filling our Children’s Art Centre gallery on Level 1 at GOMA.

 

Yayoi Kusama’s interactive Obliteration Room begins as an entirely white space, furnished as a monochrome living room, which people are then invited to ‘obliterate’ with multi-coloured stickers.

Over the course of a few weeks the room is transformed from a blank canvas into an explosion of colour, with thousands of spots stuck over every available surface.

TateShots have produced this timelapse video of The Obliteration Room covering the first few weeks of its presentation at Tate Modern. It was conceived as a project for children, and was first staged at the Queensland Art Gallery in 2002.
