Cars Plus Paint Equals A Messy, Colorful Visualization

The city of Berlin employed an interesting method to analyze traffic patterns on its roads.

Project Farbenmeer is a public art project aimed at visually tracking Berlin’s traffic. Volunteers spilled gallons of water-based paint on a busy car crossing, which was then distributed all over the square courtesy of the cars plying on that road. Different colors were used for different directions to mark traffic patterns.

Watch  footage of the cars spreading paint all over the intersection below:
