Routine Intervention is an interactive public art installation that displays the continuous transformation of everyday life. The intention is to interrupt the often monotonous routines with an opportunity for play. As individuals pass through the space, they activate a sound that can be heard on-site that corresponds to the speed of their movements. This sound is played in the space. The movements are shown visually on a long LED panel, as well as online. Several time-based variables are also represented in this way. Each day is given a color and each week a shape. The colors are reversed at sunset/rise. This gives participants the opportunity not only to become more aware of their own actions but also to reflect on the changes occurring within their routines and environments.
