I used to cover my schoolbooks in brown paper bags, and then throughout the course of the year, I would draw and put stickers all over them. They looked cool, but decidedly messy, with all those incongruous stickers living on a single surface.
So I think this art installation, “The Salon at Sundown,” is interesting. Brian Kaspr and Payton Turner took stickers of all kinds and grouped them together to make wallpaper patterns. They look orderly and neat from far away, and up close, it’s fun to check out the variety of stickers.

    AHHHHH! I love this so much! My sister and I were mad crazy sticker collectors in the 80s. This is magnificent.

    I work for Jennifer Angus (www.jenniferangus.com) who does art installations in a similar manner with insects.. but man.. those stickers look WAYYY more tedious. As someone who grew up obsessed with and collecting stickers, this is my mecca. Awesome!
