'…a thousand crashing cars, the stances of a million passengers.'

At the end of 2014, TAG elected to dance with the devil, and proffered the question 'How long will this protective structure be safe from Ballard's 'nightmare angel of the expressways'?'

Exactly thirty-nine days later the divine motorway-messenger gave his reply. The self-fulfilling prophecy experienced by our J.G. Bollard artwork would have no doubt pleased the author himself. For, given the very transient nature of street art, this piece was in some fashion 'incomplete' until the question had been answered, with the artwork violently relocated from one side of the road to the other; front-grilled, and the lights turned out. Art imitates life. Or vice versa?
