Intersection is a responsive sound installation controlled by an
audience. Visitors enter a darkened space where the sounds of car
traffic randomly move across the space. Visitors can stop the traffic
within a lane by standing in front of an approaching car, causing it to
screech to a stop, and followed by subsequent cars smashing into the back of the stopped car. A stopped car will accelerate and continue moving across the space only after a visitor moves out of its lane.
