Traffic Jam Art Installation Staged in the Mountains

Traffic Jam Art InstallationTraffic Jam Art Installation

In 2005, artist Maider López put the call out for willing participants to create an intentional car cluster muck in the Aralar Mountains. In response, more than 400 folks drove up to the countryside in 160 vehicles to get stuck. The result: an unexpected invasion to illustrate the automobile’s impact on the landscape. This made me smile.
