Art, Society and Economy
Art should not be an 'add-on' for society

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

COMMENTARY
There is something inspirational about this ... or is it something deeply disturbing. because we have built society and economy in such a way that all of this has been excluded from the core of how society and economy works and how decisions get made. Thank goodness that artists ... and musicians work to a different agenda. Maybe they should be seen and listened to with a view to reform that matters and would work!

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

This December, in a surprisingly simple yet ridiculously amazing installation for the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, 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 colored dot stickers and were invited to collaborate in the transformation of the space, turning the house into a vibrantly mottled explosion of color. How great is this? Given the opportunity my son could probably cover the entire piano alone in about fifteen minutes. The installation, entitled The Obliteration Room, is part of Kusama’s Look Now, See Forever exhibition that runs through March 12. (via stuart addelsee, sccart, and heybubbles)

If you liked this you’ll also enjoy Roman Ondak’s Room of Heights and Karina Smigla-Bobinski’s helium-filled kinetic drawing sculpture.
