For the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, the artist Yayoi Kusama created a large domestic environment, complete with locally sourced furniture and ornamentation, all of which has been painted completely white. Over the course of the exhibition during the two weeks, the room is gradually obliterated.

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. The space changing measurably with the passage of time as the dots accumulate as a result of thousands and thousands of collaborators.
