Looks familiar? Spanish intervention artists Luzinterruptus recently went to Melbourne for the Light in Winter festival and covered a large strip of Federation Square with 10,000 books outfitted with little light bulbs. Just like they did in New York that one time. In the installation Literature vs Traffic, books conquer the streets. For thirty days, Melburnians picked at and sifted […]

It doesn’t mean the same thing in Spain that it does in California, so don’t get giddy. Apparently, there’s some serious light pollution plaguing the streets of Madrid. A lot of it is due to the super-strong cross signage of 24 hour pharmacies, tinting the streets in sallow neon green. Intervention light crew Luzinterruptus steps […]

Spanish street intervention art crew Luzinterruptus strikes again. The hell you want the people of Madrid to walk three miles to the nearest drinking fountain? Outrage! Or, rather, a gentle protest, as per usual, with temporary, glowing light installations. Ahh, luminescence. For action Drinking Water Running Through the Streets, the crew took over four broken […]

De-light-ful Spanis interventionists Luzinterruptus have taken over Madrid’s public art. Why so serious? So guarded? So heavily under video surveillance, behind fences, huffy, unwelcoming? In a three hour installation Touch! Play! Nothing Happens!, the crew outfitted the city’s statues and sculptures with many, many glow-bulb-equipped nipples. Nipples all over! Nipples! Nipples! Nipples! For a moment there, the stone slabs and […]

Madrid-based intervention art crew Luzinterruptus have cooked up something quite eerie and darkly amusing for their latest light installation in Hamburg, Germany. Watch a hundred “radioactive” suits in a field, advancing in menacing rows towards the Dockville Festival grounds. They are aglow with mass “paranoia” suffered in the wake of the nuclear meltdown in Japan… […]

Madrid’s light-art street interventionists Luzinterruptus return with a Winged Tree decked out in glowing sanitary pads. This is a response to misleading advertising that pitches the feminine products as “ethereal, immaculate, delicate, odorless and beautiful” winged creatures instead of what they are — uncomfortable, synthetic wads you have to shove down your pants over your […]

Madrid’s art troupe Luzinterruptus hung 1000 lit envelopes filled with poems at La Casa de América for a poetry festival. Sure, this is more gentle of an intervention than their recent unauthorized installations of lit rogue bike lanes and glowing body bags of sex dolls. Callous cynics: Lighten up! […]

Madrid’s light-art crew of Luzinterruptus staged an intervention of empathy recently. Like the Chinese workers selling alcohol in the street at night in “an improvised bar fashion, on fruit boxes recovered from the trash,” they built their own Portable No-Name Bar. They’re blinged out with red mood lighting and LED lights punched into cardboard signs […]
