Artist Statement:


    What happens to order when three city traffic lights lose control of their reds and greens? Light signals change without warning. Cars crash in rhythm and Traffic Jam quickly becomes an out-of-control urban opera. A synergized stop-and-go rhythm is orchestrated using peculiar objects such as drills, scissors, and bike pumps. Dodging flying wreckage and debris, the lights show their versatility and ingenuity as they become incoming projectile “instruments.” Sitting through a traffic jam has never been so much fun.
