Artwork is Work, Supporting the Arts Means Paying the Artists 

Photo by Scott Beale for Laughing Squid

Scott Beale over at Laughing Squid spotted this great bumper sticker the other day while traveling through Ohio. This is probably the first time we’ve stopped to appreciate a bumper sticker on Colossal, but the message is definitely an important one these days. Pick one up through Northern Sun for just $2.50.

Three Hyper Island students (Caio Andrade, Rafael Ochoa, and Linn Livijn Wexell) dreamed up the idea of making “Not Available on the App Store” stickers as a friendly reminder to get kids away from the screen and into the real world. Stickers are available for purchase or you can make your own. Purchased!

Street Eraser: Giant Stickers Appear to Erase the Streets of London with Photoshop 







For their Street Eraser project artists Tayfun Sarier and Guus ter Beek (who both work at Wieden+Kennedy) created giant adhesive stickers that look like the eraser tool in Photoshop. Once applied to advertisements, graffiti and other objects it appears as if the surface is being erased, revealing Photoshop’s checkerboard background signifying a blank canvas. Fun!

Poster Cred Sticker Installations 

Poster Cred is an ongoing project by Seattle-based designer Joseph King that attempts to poke fun of the implicit credibility suggested by designers who photograph themselves holding posters for marketing purposes. You can participate in the project by requesting stickers via the Poster Cred page, and photos of the stickers in action have come back from all over the world. Definitely see the entire gallery, some of these are pretty fun. (via lustik)

This is What Happens When You Give Thousands of Stickers to Thousands of Kids 

This December, in a surprisingly simple yet ridiculously amazing installation for the Queensland Gallery of Modern Ar, artist Yayoi Kusama constructed a large domestic environment, painting every wall, chair, table, piano, and household decoration a brilliant white, effectively serving as a giant white canvas. Over the course of two weeks, 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. How great is this? Given the opportunity my son could probably cover the entire piano alone in about fifteen minutes. The installation, entitled The Obliteration Room, is part of Kusama’s Look Now, See Forever exhibition that runs through March 12.
