Ever find yourself picking a Dora the Explorer sticker off your hard wood floors for the better part of an hour, only to discover there’s a Diego sticker stuck to the sliding glass door?

I’ve found stickers on windows, furniture and television sets. All seem to have been stuck there with super glue. It’s good thing I’ve got nails although I imagine, if this keeps up, I won’t have them for long.

The solution?

Don’t pick the stickers off. Just give your kid 10,000 more stickers and tell them to go to work. Then you can live in something 82-year-old artist Yayoi Kusama calls “The Obliteration Room”.

Kusama constructed an all-white living room in the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art and then let kids loose over the course of two weeks to decorate it with multi-colored stickers. You can fly down to Australia to check out the installation yourself or view the awesome progression below:

Of course, I don’t see any Dora stickers involved.

New Year’s Resolution #2: Throw out Mazzy’s current licensed-character-focused sticker collection and buy a bunch of carefully-curated dots. Then sit back, relax and let her go to town. Art is near.
