Interactive Installation, 2015
What kind of a role do traffic lights have in our world ? They are there to make us feel conformable and safe. Take Your Time is a site-specific interactive installation. Take Your Time plays with our usual perception of the traffic light and provides a different role to the traffic light. Here its function is inverted. The traffic light will be “hacked” to create an uncomfortable situation around it for the passing visitors. The traffic light will be installed near the W.C. It will be emitting natural but slightly disturbing sounds attempting to disturb the visitors. The users can interact with the traffic light and by doing so, they can get a moment of silence to finish their needs on the toilet. Water Closet is less commonly understood than the more international W.C.
