Pedestrians obey your signals. 

The cold surface, swept with scars of its installation and endurance performance had etched a history of trauma over its 19 year existence. The light cast from the subterranean hollow caught the surface with dulled effect. As they passed, few noticed but the spectrum of tones echoed the seventh slide of Metzger’s Liquid Crystal environment projection from 2008 at the defunct Arches venue in Glasgow. The scent of rotting flesh mixed with the stale odour of dried alcohol and damp concrete combined in an acerbic stench of fading dopamine. Flairs of purple quickly faded to acid green and yellow as the light tore through its surface. Opacity had empowered the reflective wall, allowing it to subject its participants to a more astute understanding of their significance.
