Luzinterruptus, El Viento Nos Trajo La Crisis
Luzinterruptus, is an anonymous artistic group based in Spain, who carries out urban interventions in public spaces using light as a raw material and the dark as their canvas. The three members of the collective come from different disciplines: art, lighting and photography and have a creative purpose of leaving lights on throughout the city of Madrid so that other people put them out. They began this interesting art collective on the streets of Madrid at the end of 2008 with the simple idea of focusing people´s attention by using light on problems they found in the city and that seem to go unnoticed by the authorities and citizens. Sometimes however their sole purpose is only to highlight anonymous places or corners that seem special or objects to which they think extraordinary artistic value.
The installation `The wind brought us the Crisis´ was carried out on 28th April at Madrid's Stock Exchange which would hold a shareholder's meeting the following day in the same building.
