one shut eye?

Could you sleep in this room? If you’re the kind of person who is driven insane by pure white walls (me), then turning over and facing the opposite wall of this hotel room may lull you to sleep faster than counting sheep. If just looking at this vibrant graffiti is giving you a migraine, well, you still have half of a sterile hotel room to enjoy!

Earlier in the year, a small gallery in Brisbane was thrown into the spotlight due to the frenzied reception of Yayoi Kusama’s ‘Obliteration Room.’ There, Kusama debuted an interactive installation that invited the gallery’s youngest visitors to plaster a stark white interior with colorful polka dot stickers.

A similar Jekyll-and-Hyde contrast has been crystallized in a hotel room in Marseille, France, where artist Tilt has left his mark in the form of a half-graffitied interior.

The room, one of five at a hotel that receives a regular rotation of guest artists, is dramatically torn in half. Upon entering, the hotel guest immediately steps into a space eerily devoid of color, save for hanging picture frames that neatly capture the essence of what’s in store.
