Traffic Island is an independent territory.
Traffic Island is a utopia.
Traffic Island is an area to be defined.
Traffic Island is an area that we refuse to define.
As soon as Traffic Island is defined, it has to disappear, to escape the control of the empire, leaving behind a cloud of smoke, to be deployed elsewhere, again invisible, because it is outside the organisation of the spectacle and its society.


When we study the history of utopias, we quickly realise that time and space are not entirely related to the metric system or to time zones. They must be considered from the point of view of the sedimentation of the senses and emotions on a sinusoidal axis that takes into account time and distance.


The image that best illustrates this stochastic aspect of the free empire of Traffic Island is the bug in the VLC software (videolance). The image of the film is disturbed, creating a pixilated filter that remains for a short time in the next film. This space of freedom created by the superposition of two images represents the principle that unites all the islands of our network. In the blind spots of economic liberalism and globalisation, the marginalised who occupy the libertarian empire of Traffic Island weave their web to create zones where the imagination becomes unconditional.


Traffic Island is the territorial vector that unites the free territories.
