In the installation TRAFFIC PATTERNS, a drop ceiling is illuminated synchronously to a traffic light in the city of San Juan, Puerto Rico. Green, yellow and red light fills the room in the respective durations of the traffic control. Due to the connection of the controlling device to the time-code of the specific traffic light, the installation was able to interlink Puerto Rico and New York City when it was exhibited there.
