Yayoi Kusama’s Obliteration Room – TateShots

Watch more with these video collections:

Yayoi Kusama‘s Obliteration Room is one of the more visually memorable collaborative museum projects in recent memory. Within it, children are invited to cover the white surfaces with dot stickers — from the walls, to the floor, to furniture, to pillows and teapots… anything — transforming the room into an explosion of colors and patterns as time passes.

The installation has been invited to Asia, Europe, and South America since it was first commissioned by the Children’s Art Centre at Queensland Art Gallery of Modern Art in 2002. The newest version is at GOMA until April 19, 2015.

Above, a video from London’s Tate Modern in 2012.
