We asked for permission to borrow a company’s truck without concealing the purpose for its use. The driver didn’t mind when he was asked to block the side lanes of one of the city’s busiest roads for five minutes. This piece consisted of positioning a white prism perpendicular to the road, generating a traffic jam.
This work was about inserting a minimal object into a specific situation and observing what it does. It's different from other situations, in an art gallery for example. In that sense, I'm doing something real by putting an object on the highway. It was about the fact that – when I lived in Mexico – the roads were often blocked for hours. I wanted to take revenge. This is what workers in Mexico tend to do when they have any kind of problem. It is a very natural and effective way of acting there.
