Paint by Traffic

(YouTube Link)

At the Rosenthaler Platz, an intersection in Berlin, artists poured paint on to the street to see what images cars, buses, and bicycles would make with it:

The various colours of paint were dumped onto the road in large puddles at different locations throughout the intersection. As traffic drove through, the paint was spread around creating lots of colourful lines. The whole action took only a few seconds: bikers had poured paint from big boxes in front of cars that waited for green lights. So the cars and their wheels, if the driver wanted it or not, became the brush tool for this guerilla public art piece.The creators of the project posted signs on post nearby explaining that the paint wasn’t harmful and would simply wash off with water

What a total pile of assholes.
This isn't Neat. It's a blatant crime. Are you serious?
Purely idiotic and has no place in adult conversation about things as remotely serious as LOLcats. Don't give this friggin' idiots a venue to distribute. Take this post down.

I would be mad if I had just washed my car and had to drive through colored puddles, even if it does wash off.
Ugh, the lame crud people call "Art"...

About as interesting (and artsy) as throwing a handful of grass seeds in dirt, and then using a cheap video camera to film them sprouting. Wohoo, I'm a artist.
