The Eye Writer
Artist Tony Quan was diagnosed with ALS, and lost the ability to use almost all of his body, except his eyes and brain. With the help of some crafty friends, he is able to draw and create art again. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t get chills from this video.

White room + stickers + kids
Artist Yayoi Kusama constructed a stark white space installed in the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art. Then over two weeks time, gave child visitors thousands of colorful stickers to decorate however they wished, resulting in an extremely brightly-colored room. Very cool.
