REPEAT AFTER ME
With Yayoi Kusama’s interest in repetition as inspiration, experiment with making an artwork using your own repeated image or symbol.
What you’ll need: paper, glue, and small, everyday objects that you can collect a lot of
- Kusama used stickers she had around the house to make her artwork. Instead of stickers, find a type of everyday object that you have in your home. For example, you could use cotton balls, toothpicks, buttons, or dried macaroni!
- Starting wherever you like, glue an object to the paper. Guess how many you’ll need to draw to fill the entire page. 100? 250? 1,000?
- Now glue another one. Now glue another one, over and over. See if you can fill the whole page!
- How many of your object were you able to fit onto one page? Try to count them.
