Next time you're in the street 
check out the traffic lights, they're pretty cool.

In many places, 
people's work happens in the red light: 
incredible circus acts,
rose vendors,
insanity or sanity,
and sex.

Please take out your phone and shoot a moment in the red light! then please please share it with us! We want to collect happenings at traffic lights around the world! Then share in EL TARRO facebook:

All will be credited in a massive projection at Melbourne's ACMI, the most amazing centre for the moving image in Australia.
