"Red, Green, Blue, Fares" (红绿蓝车费)
"Red, Green, Blue, Fare" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
I see a red taxi approaching and wave him down. The leather seat cracks as I hurriedly climb in. It’s a hot day, I’m thankful for the blast of cool air. Almost without warning the car comes to life, carefully yet expertly maneuvering the narrow streets of Tsim Sha Tsui. And not only are these streets narrow, they’re also packed with hurried pedestrians, rushing cyclists and motorists skillfully avoiding collisions, buses and trams speeding by in all directions, oh my! like Vivaldi’s Summer, it’s a beautiful chaotic blur. And in that blur my mind starts to wander, “how did I end up in Kowloon?”. The notion of predestination is quite interesting. I guess sometimes it’s easier to believe there’s a specific road for each of us. Trusting in our own freewill can seem like a burden. With no one right path, the possibilities are endless! Can you imagine no such thing as taking a wrong turn? My thoughts are suddenly interrupted by the taxi coming to a full stop. I pull my octopus card, pay my fare and step outside. Standing at the corner of Jordan road, I look right, then left, then right again and start walking.
