Piano Stairs - The Fun Theory

I recieved this video in an email a couple of years ago, and was instantly reminded of it when UTS lecturer Frank Feldham came and spoke about his exhibition, The Aesthetics of Slow, and went on to explain how he took this original idea of a 'real-life piano', I guess you could say, and developed it into an indoor installation.

As the video suggests, the original intention behind this project was to find a creative way to influence more people to use the stairs instead of the escalators. Interesting to see how a little playfulness injected into an otherwise dull and quotidian environment can change people's walking decisions!

  1. That is pretty funny! It's crazy how people see that the stairs will make noise, so walk back from the escalators to use the steps! haha!
