ALL YELLOW, the town we live in, is an opportunity to rediscover some of the inspiring aspects of every-day experience. As the viewer enters the space, they are, perhaps unknowingly, met by the sound of The Beatles Yellow Submarine. From a collection of miniature music boxes, the familiar tune softly fills the space as each box cranks at a variety of under-tempo rates.
Through proximity sensors, the music boxes seem to sense the viewer’s presence. As one moves through the space, the rate of the boxes slow as each is approached in turn, as if they are inviting us to take some time to listen.
All Yellow offers us a moment of awareness. A place to go where one can check their day at the door and truly listen. It shows us that, with just a small adjustment to the way we perceive our world, the familiar can once again be unfamiliar, the mundane extraordinary, and the every-day magnificently unique.
