Bedroom wall art is a curious phenomenon often seen in college dorms and the rooms of angsty teens. It involves the plastering of collected memorabilia and posters in the forms of collages and/or bursts of “identity” onto blank walls. To create your very own bedroom wall art, you will need the following:
- 1 bedroom
- 1 roll of tape
- 1 chair or stool to stand on
- 1 flexible spine
- 2 eyes for measuring spaces
- Things to plaster: photographs, posters, cut-outs, print-outs, postcards, artwork, birthday cards, ticket stubs, playing cards, etcetera.
- Organize your “things to plaster” on the floor. Determine how you will organize everything (by genre, color, size?) and create a rough layout.
- Make several hundred tape rolls (or find a tape roll assistant).
- Begin the process of assembling.
- Halfway through, stop and ponder the definition of art, if there is one, and your position in the realm of personal creativity.
- Finish! Your bedroom wall art is complete. You have two options: 1) allow the pieces of paper and plastic to curl and drift off over the years, or 2) redo the whole damn thing in a few months. Either way, it is all temporary in the scope of time.
