Crossroads is a place for people to cross the road. People have to walk quickly across the zebra crossing before the light turn red. However, one doesn’t have to cross the zebra crossing by just“walking”. It thus gives a possibility where we may do some performance at the crossroads. I was deeply attracted by some very interesting video performances where people do performance at the crossroads shown in the Singapore Biennale 2013. Perhaps I had a desire to do some performance there since then. Then one day when I climbed up the ladder to fetch something in my study, I suddenly got the inspiration to climb the ladder at the zebra crossings. It should be something interesting. It won’t stop my moving state, nor block others’. The time can also be controlled by traffic lights. So that’s how we crossed the road at the crossroads one day in Tainan.
