An art project to get stuck on.

It’s not permanent. Little notes have started to fall from it (and been pulled off, by little hands) so it’s constantly changing. It’s like having a new piece of art everyday.

Here is a time lapse video of it’s creation, yes our two cats helped:

Have some time and $20, why not imagine the kinds of things you could create with a few sticky notes and a blank wall?

    I love this project and the video was great, loved the cats. One totally disinterested and the other having to have a look!
