Flashmob: Spontaneous Happening (2016)
Flashmob

We spontaneously painted wooden planks with conflict-transformation-related phrases and secretly (in the middle of the night) hung them up along Auroville’s roads, to inspire the unexpected. However, it wasn’t long until someone else (who?) decided that this was too outrageous and secretly took them down. How sad.
