Surprising Paint Stories

Five social experiments in public

This video series shows the impact of paint & colour on the five human senses, and features international performers who create their pieces inspired by the colours of the wall. All performers are experts in a field connected to one human sense (Musicians for Hearing, Perfumers for Smell, a Chef for Taste, Painters for Vision, and Sculptor for Touch).

As the walls around the performers rotate and the colours change, we witness how their emotions get transformed - each new colour energizing them to create very different pieces inspired by the colours on the walls.

Episode: Hearing

Three initially skeptical musicians, perform inspired by the changing colors of the walls. Find out which color inspires sheer joy, memories of underground Jazz clubs and more.
