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.

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

    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…

    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.
