This piece of work is a recreation of his childhood bedroom by Damien Hirst. It is one of a number of Shoe Box Art pieces featured in a BBC Imagine documentary about the influence of play on art. How creative play can open up the imagination, and the importance and influence of childhood play on contemporary artists. I found the documentary really interesting click the title link to see the film on BBC i-player.
You can see more of the shoebox art pieces that were made by contemporary artists including Tracy Emin, Jake and Dinos Chapman, David Bailey, Gavin Turk, Rob Ryan, Kate Moross and many others here : Shoeboxart.co.uk.
