Coll.eo, CARJACKED (After Yayoi Kusama, machinima, playable car, 2012
The tenth automobile in the ongoing CARJACKED project was appropriated by Yayoi Kusama's bots:
"This project is an integral part of Kusama’s entrepreneurial art making collaboration for global brands, including KDDI Corporation (handbag-shaped cell phone), Lancome (lip glosses), Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton (leather goods, accessories, shoes, watches, jewelry), and many more. The artist, who represented Japan at the Venice Biennale in 1993, has played with car projects before. In the Summer of 2010, she painted a black Toyota PRIUS with bright pink dots. The same year, she designed a Town Sneaker-model bus which she called Mizutama Ranbu (Wild Polka Dot Dance) which travels through her hometown of Matsumoto. Nonetheless, her contribution to the virtual BMW Art Cars initiative is unmatched and unparalleled. This spectacular, exclusive, one-of-a-kind BMW is a triumph of form and style. It makes Damien Hirst’s previous dots-effort look spotty by comparison.(Coll.eo)
