What Happens When You Give Thousands of Stickers to a Bunch of Kids: Awesome or Eh?

Museums can be so stuffy sometimes -- but this one's the exact opposite. Last month, artist Yayoi Kusama created "The Obliteration Room" -- a room at the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, Australia -- where everything from couches and pianos to chairs and lamps were painted white, serving as a literal blank canvas.

Then, Kusama did the unthinkable. She invited the museum's youngest visitors in, gave them stickers and told them to go to town. What conspired afterwords can't really be described in words, so you'll just have to look at the photos below to get the full before-and-after effect. Do you think Kusama's installation, "The Obliteration Room," is as awesome as we do -- or is it no big thing?

    That's great, kind of reminds me of the stickers me and my brother put on our bedroom doors during the seventies.

    Put a few stickers on the kids and they could get lost in there.

    Creative & fun but the maintenance men who have to paint the place are probably drunk & considering early retirement.

    I really appreciate creativity. Kids are some of the most creative life forms on the planet.Give them stickers, time and a place to apply them and the kids will be in hog heaven until there are no more stickers.

    I love the innocence of the child's creative mind .. Such a wonderful thing to see working (although cleaning up the mess afterwards is a pain in the rear!)
