Just looking at the idea for another centerpiece exhibition in Rond Point Schuman in Brussels, which usually entice innocent pedestrians to attempt crossing this traffic nightmare and risk death or serious injury in the process. However, I think the idea is kind of cool; the noises from the circle will be translated into light colors and patterns. The installation will convert annoying sounds like honking, yelling drivers, and blaring police sirens into pleasant light pulses. I suppose the translators slaving away nearby would appreciate this metaphor for their work.

On the other hand, I empathize with its critics.
