On December 12, 26 street lights on Calle del Pez in Madrid, Spain were given a domesticated touch at the hands of LuzInterruptus for the Luz Interruptus (Red) Project. This guerrilla lighting installation involved fitting the streetlights with square lampshades.

The total financial outlay for the seven-hour Luz Interruptus (Red) Project was 180 euros, and the lampshades took three hours to install.

Implications - Public illumination displays bring joy and beauty to many passersby. Since these installations are grounded in reality, it becomes all the more inspirational for those who can enjoy it on a realistic level. This form of creativity can be adapted by businesses who are looking to dress up their product through window displays to attract consumers.
