Beautiful Highway Crash: Massive Spill Of Rainbow Ink Outside Boston

The Boston Globe reports that a tractor-trailer hauling 16,000 pounds of red, blue, and yellow printers’ ink overturned on the highway in Peabody, Massachusetts this past month, spilling a gorgeous array of colors down Interstate 95. Sadly, the affected sections of the highway are being replaced, as authorities found removing the colors to be impossible.

    thats sad, they should leave the ink splatter rather than replacing it.

      It contaminates stuff so no can… it might be pretty to look at but I don’t want to be drinking it. Plus think of the poor birds and other wildlife…

    While I tend not to like abstract art, this is cool because its an accident.

    Since it has to be R&R’d, the highway contractor should meticulously cut it up w/ a concrete saw into large, puzzle pieces, then have it exhibited as a huge installation in a modern art museum. Even BMA might be interested! Wonder how much it’d be worth? The artist(truck driver) & contractor would have to be compensated.
