Traffic Light in Shadow

Although Ulaanbaatar is not the biggest and best city in the world it has changed and developed rapidly in the last few years. At the same time, there is a massive migration of nomads to the city and our society is changing from a nomadic life style to an urban society.
My studio is located in the busiest part of the city. The city seen through the window of my studio has multiple images with busy hectic traffic and overcrowded streets… not many images that make you happy. Loud sounds of car horns mixed with bus controllers’ screaming voices announcing leaving buses compose a unique hectic street “music” that I like and dislike.

I wanted to show the chaotic reality of my neighbourhood in the series of my video work entitled Traffic Light in Shadow.
