January 17, 2012 The Obliteration Room

Start off with a completely white room - a canvas of sorts.



Give children lots of dot stickers.



Quote:
The white room is gradually obliterated over the course of the exhibition, the space changing measurably with the passage of time as the dots accumulate as a result of thousands and thousands of collaborators.


Discovered on This Is Colossal

Installation conceived by Yayoi Kusama: Look Now, See Forever
and shown in Queensland Gallery of Modern Art.

I like it.

Imagine if they gave each visitor gum to use instead?

Did someone say gum??

This is the Maid Rite drive thru in the greater Greenville Ohio area. The Maid Rite's are good if you don't get too grossed out driving past the gum art. I am a frequent contributor.

then you get the Seattle Gum Wall.

See, this is why they say careful what you ask for.

Thanks, BigV. I've been a lurker for awhile. Your Seattle Gum Wall is much more colorful.

I really want to paint my basement white now and hand out stickers. I'll put it on my to-do list.

Thanks for posting that, bbuilder. I've been to Maid Rite's a few times, though not for a few years now. As soon as I read that glatt mentioned using gum, I thought of "the loose meat sandwich place in Greenville...what's it called?"

How long has Maid Rite been there? It is pretty famous locally.

Welcome, fellow Ohioan!

You make sandwiches out of hookers in Ohio?

That sounds like a fishing club who use old boots for bait.

When I was a kid, there was a ride at Six Flags theme park that had a tree you could reach from on the ride. Everybody stuck their gum there.

There are hookers in Ohio? gasp.

Maid Rite has been in Greenville since 1934 from what I can tell. Apparently things don't change there much which adds to the charm.

On a more serious note, what the heck is a loose meat sandwich? How does it differ from a...sandwich.

Crumbled beef. I don't know what all they use in them, but they're delish!
