MASSIVE EXHIBIT OF CREATIVITY FOUND TO BE ROOTED IN INOPERATIVE TRAFFIC LIGHTS


Nanjing, CHINA – In an event without precedent in contemporary China, thousands of vehicles and pedestrians participated in what initially appeared to be a carefully choreographed interpretive dance. First reports declared the dance to represent the intricate combination of frustration and flow involved in navigating Chinese roads. Trucks, public buses, cars, bikes, and pedestrians met and avoided each other at the center of the four-way intersection. “We’ve been practicing for weeks,” said Little Wind, the original source for this story, a local street vendor who managed to pull his shop through the hullabaloo. “It was like one of those Rubik’s Cube puzzles. Everything simultaneously had a place and was in the way of another thing’s place. Colorful and amazing.”

Upon hearing that the broken lights were fixed and that traffic had resumed order Little Wind shook his head, “The hundreds of blaring horns gave everything a sense of urgency. Everyone who had seats was on the edge of theirs. It was magical. I guess you had to be a participant to understand the true beauty and meaning.”
