Colourstops (1,2) is a permanent sound installation in two bus shelters, along the Manchester Road in Bradford.

The work of art subtly alters the space of the shelter with the sound of a female voice, gently singing the colours of the clothing of the people passing through: a unique song of colour.The installation has attracted worldwide interest wining a prestigious RSA Art for Architecture Award and heralded by many as a unique and compelling way to alter the urban landscape.
