road camera fluxus
Update: This involved painted cardboard panels taken to the site. Looking at it now I needed larger panels but as it turned out it was all I could do to hold what I had in the truck-wash at roadside.
That white blur at the top of the sign here is me. I had a cell phone and when the camera tripped my accomplice back at base (aka my wife) said that it looked kinda small.
I moved closer, dug the edges into the gravel and ducked into the ditch just behind the sign. A bit better but still a little small. (The resolution of the traffic cam causes the cardboard to look mostly like the grey of the gravel.)
This is a shot of the panels I was using (and an example of the wind-wash culprits -- also, REALLY noisy on a cell phone).
The traffic cam is actually across a small road that is a favorite of bike riders (quite a few out today). Nobody stopped to ask what I was doing but there might be more than one googling 'fluxus' this evening.
