Nothing Happened began with a video made by a minimalist. A few vehicles occasionally passed by the viewer and there were no pedestrians in sight on the highway in a freezing winter. Meanwhile, according to the real-time city simulation, a serious accident simultaneously occurred on the same highway while the photographer made this video. But in a strong favor of the minimalist aesthetic, she chose not to shoot the accident, in a way to maintain the tranquility of a cold winter day.
