Crossroads and their traffic lights are controlled by powerful algorithms based on fuzzy logic. Fuzzy logic constantly adjusts the system to the current traffic situation in order to make it as efficient as possible. By walking around the crossroad repeatedly, a character creates regularity in an unpredictable system and forces the algorithm to adapt to his behavior. The character disrupts the hyper responsive reactions of the machine in order to create another rhythm, not based on efficiency.
