This is What Happens When You Give Thousands of Stickers to Thousands of Kids

Back in December 2011, in a surprisingly simple yet ridiculously amazing installation for the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, artist Yayoi Kusama constructed a large domestic environment, painting every wall, chair, table, piano, and household decoration a brilliant white, effectively serving as a giant white canvas.

Over the course of two weeks, the museum’s smallest visitors were given thousands upon thousands of coloured dot stickers and were invited to collaborate in the transformation of the space, turning the house into a vibrantly mottled explosion of colour.

How great is this? Given the opportunity my son could probably cover the entire piano alone in about fifteen minutes. The installation, was entitled The Obliteration Room.
