“Yayoi Kusama’s interactive Obliteration Room begins as an entirely white space, furnished as a monochrome living room, which people are then invited to ‘obliterate’ with multi-coloured stickers. After a few weeks the room is transformed from a blank canvas into an explosion of colour, with thousands of spots stuck over every available surface. TateShots have produced the below timelapse video of The Obliteration Room covering the first few weeks of its presentation at Tate Modern. It was conceived as a project for children, and was first staged at the Queensland Art Gallery in 2002.
Golan Levin is an American artist and engineer interested in developing artifacts and events which explore supple new modes of reactive expression. His artwork focuses on the design of systems as part of a more general inquiry into formal languages of interactivity and of nonverbal communication. Through performances, digital artifacts, and virtual environments, often created with a variety of collaborators, Levin applies creative twists to digital technologies that highlight our relationship with machines, making visible our ways of interacting with each other, and exploring the intersection of abstract communication and interactivity.
