Luzinterruptus is an anonymous artistic group from Spain, who carries out urban interventions in public spaces. The two members of the team come from different disciplines: art and photography and have wanted to apply our creativity in a common action, to leave lights throughout the city so that other people put them out.
Luzinterrruptus created for Hamburg’s Dockville Festival an army of 100 illuminated radioactive figures garden in hazmat suits. Installation is an "invitation to reflection regarding the use and abuse of nuclear energy, cheap in economic terms, but which can cause grave secondary effects for the environment and health, forever irreversible."
If the sun were a tree
Its leaves would be this shining color
And they would drop
Over the toes of my boots
When I step
There would be the sound
Of light breaking.

From the ever-fascinating book on the evolution of German bookbinding, Die entwicklung der modernen buchkunst in Deustchland (1901),these owls are excerpted from “Der bunte Vogel,” or “the colorful bird.” (ironic, no?)
If you are a fan of Art Nouveau, this book is a goldmine of inspiration.
(You can find the original Der bunte Vogel on archive.org, though sadly not in our collection.)
