This winter the Queensland Museum of Art invited Yayoi Kusama to do an installation in the museum. The pattern-obsessed artist created a totally white room, and then invited children into the space and gave them colored dot stickers. Within two weeks every surface was transformed into an explosion of color.

This brought to mind our work on the Essex Street pedestrian mall in Salem. At public meetings we gave participants dot sticks with which they could “vote” on their preferred option.

The Yayoi Kusama exhibition might be a community meeting gone wrong—-or very right!
