Yayoi Kusama - Obliteration Room

A dotty 82-year-old Japanese artist has created an artwork by getting children to decorate a totally white room with thousands of colourful spots.
Yayoi Kusama says she created her 'Obliteration Room' work as a way of getting visiting children to engage with an art gallery space.
As part of 'Look Now, See Forever' at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art a large room has been decorated like an apartment, but one which was entirely painted white.
But it didn't stay that way for long, because the kids were handed brighlty coloured stickers and told to redecorate as they saw fit.
The result -- which took two weeks to complete -- is a random plethora of multi-coloured polka dots and will be on display until March 12.
