# FIGHT WITH TOOLS /// Flash Mobs


Flash Mobs are evanescent gathering of people who do not know each other and who participate to a "gamy" action for about five minutes before leaving the place as fast as they arrived. Flash Mobs are a direct product of the possibility of instant spaming messages like emails or sms and amaze people for their evanescence as much as their uselessness.
Nevertheless, for five minutes a public space is considerably changed by this gathering and become an instant dreamlike vision of common space becoming social space.

For those who read French, here is an article by Valérie Chatelet, called La ville en fete et en délire (quoting Edith Piaf).

Here are two videos from the same place (Liverpool Street Station in London) during two different flash mobs. Freeze or Silent disco, choose your side !
