The Obliteration Room

All white: The room before thousands of children were let loose on it over a two week period with coloured stickers

For 40 years Yayoi  Kusama has made paintings, sculptures and photographs using dots to cover surfaces and fill rooms, a process she calls 'obliteration', which means the complete destruction of every trace of something, in this case white space. The room, which is part of her 'Look Now, See Forever' installation at the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art, took visitors to the Australian gallery two weeks to create and is now a flurry of colour and random dots. A huge fan of dots myself, I love it!

Spot on: Children bring colour to the world of Yayoi Kusama at Queensland Gallery of Modern Art

Art attack: One visitor to the Queensland Museum of Modern Art makes her selection as she adds to The Obliteration Room installation

Look carefully: There's a little girl in this image but with her patterned dress she almost disappears into The Obliteration Room at Queensland Gallery of Modern Art
