You Give Kids Thousands of Stickers & This is What Happens (Photos)

The Obliteration Room

I don’t know about your home, but ours is covered in stickers. We have stickers on the fridge, stickers on the floor, and stickers on the wall featuring a variety of images from My Little Pony to Hello Kitty. They are seriously everywhere, all courtesy of our sticker-crazy five-year-old. But her sticker prowess has nothing, and I mean nothing, on the adhesive craziness that occurred on the walls, floors, and fixtures of an installation by artist Yayoi Kusama, entitled The Obliteration Room that had been on display at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art.

The project started with a clean white slate. Kusama created a domestic-looking space that was all painted a pure white. Then — over the course of two weeks — the children who visited were given thousands of small, colored dot stickers. The transformation was stunning.

Check out a sampling of the beginning and the end of the project right here:

    Kusama started with a blank slate where she created a home-like environment all in pure, clean white.

    It started slow enough, with just a sprinkling of stickers.

    A pattern of polka dots is starting to appear.

    You can notice how some kids began to create patterns with the stickers ... but that was short lived.
  • Covered! 5 of 5
    After the two-week period, the room was totally covered with stickers.
