The steps of the Stock Exchange in Madrid were the setting of an evocative light installation by Luzinterruptus at the end of April 2009. The display was comprised of 80 illuminated pages of the financial section of the newspaper.

The installation was meant to signify the current economic crisis and how not until the stock exchange and the media publicized the stats and figures did the fear spread.
