YOU YOU + YOU
YOU YOU + YOU is an instrument played with others and informed by the idea of community participation so central to the United Way.
On a vast wall is an illuminated and graphic image, the braille for Y O U.
Hand prints invite you to touch talking stick, each print triggering a note on the pentatonic scale. A melody is created as more people join in and many notes are played. Each hand print is also linked to a light on the wall – so that the music becomes visible.
Eos Lightmedia worked closely with artists Metz & Chew on the development of the concept and provided design detailing, prototype mockups, fabrication, and programming of the installation.
