Artist's Description

The butterfly effect

On my way to work this morning, before I had read about the theme for this challenge, I paused momentarily and considered whether or not to press the button at the pedestrian crossing. If I had pressed it, it would have taken me about the same amount of time to cross the road. But I didn’t press it. I waited until the oncoming car had driven passed before walking across.

If I had pressed the button, the light would have changed and the car would have stopped. It would have approached the next traffic light slightly later, at a different speed. It would have used more petrol getting there, released more carbon monoxide and worn the brakes a little more. The driver would have been in a slightly different mood.

These are a few consequences of an action that didn’t happen. There are infinite more. Perhaps I saved the world this morning, or perhaps I condemned it. But if I did, so did you…
