Oneinfive is an artwork specially commissioned for Five
Ways Health Centre in Childwall, Liverpool. Designed to be
contemplative and thought-provoking, this interactive piece comes
to life with human touch and offers a chance to reflect on the
wonders of daily life.
Artist collective, Unusual, worked with students from Childwall School to look at the Five Ways to Wellbeing - five simple actions that can improve our well-being (Connect, Be Active, Take Notice, Keep Learning, Give). The students interviewed family and public about the wonders of everyday life and the sense of wellbeing they can give us. They asked questions like: What made you smile today? Did you see something unusual while travelling to your destination? Have you learnt any new skills recently? Who are the people important in your life? When did you last do something nice for someone?
Visitors to the health centre can find the answers to these questions by placing your hand on top of the shape on the piece. As you touch it, watch as five sentences scroll out - representing the Five Ways to Wellbeing and the Five Ways roundabout outside the health centre.
As time goes by, the students from Childwall School will update the text offering visitors a new experience each time they visit the health centre.
