The anonymous art collective Luzinterruptus creates beautiful light installations.

Luzinterruptus: street art made with light
Madrid - JUL 16, 2013

For the two components of the anonymous art collective Luzinterruptus, light is a huge inspiration. Coming from disciplines such as art and photography, they both know the power and magic of light, and work with her to achieve a great visual impact in very flexible installations. For them, light is the raw material and the night a canvas that extends through the streets of the city.

Their purpose, in their own words is "leaving lights on around the city with the intention that the others will turn them off." Their beginnings go back to 2008, when they began to intervene in the streets of Madrid. While some of their work has a subversive character, as a focus on problems that manifest themselves in the street, another part of their work aims to beautify or take places or objects out of anonymity. Each one of their actions seeksto cause the least negative impact possible, without damaging the urban elements or completely to appropriate themselves of a space so that other artists and users can also enjoy it. Their extremely ephemeral installations speak of life in the city, nature and inhospitable environments.
