Illuminating Poetry December 22, 2010 – Tags: , ,

The folks at the amazing Spanish art collective Luzinterruptus, who are known for their illuminated installations in public places, are at it again. Back in March we covered their “literature vs. traffic” piece, where they covered a street in lower Manhattan with 800 lighted books. Now they have landed in Madrid.

This past October, to celebrate a poetry festival, Luzinterruptus filled 1000 envelopes with poems by some of the participants, added some tiny lights, and proceeded to hang the envelopes in the garden outside the building where the festival took place. At the conclusion of the festival 100 of these envelopes were distributed to attendees with the hope they would send them through the mail.
