PHARMACY HERBS AND MUTANT WEEDS BY LUZINTERRUPTUS
Over the last 30 years, over 50% of the public water fountains in Madrid have been dismantled, broken, or not safe to drink. In an effort to bring attention to this issue, an anonymous Spanish art group transformed four non-functioning public water fountains into glowing versions of their former, working selves. The project is called 'Drinking Water Running Through The Streets.'
Luzinterruptus "To give them shape we used condoms, yes, condoms, extra large and extra strength, to which we added blue colored water, to turn them into big drops, with feel and form of silicone breasts, very pleasant to touch and squeeze. With them we created a square space, delimited by suspended droplets in which one could immerse themselvesand touch them, listening to the gentle sound of the moving water."
The installation Radioactive Control was created for the Dockville Festival in de Hamburg which tried to demonstrate, in a humorous tone, the paranoia that we are suffering from since the escape of radioactive material in Japan, has brought into question the safety systems at the nuclear power plants.
