Walking across this set of high-concept street art by the Madrid-based group Luzinterruptus might make you feel as if you've stepped through the wrong door and entered a bizarre, not-too-distant future.'Pharmacy Herbs' and 'Mutant Weeds' is Luzinterruptus latest socially conscious project aimed at drawing attention to the increase of light pollution and the detrimental effect it has on people.

Having a neighborhood pharmacy nearby would certainly be a selling point, up until you realize that the luminescent glow of the fluorescent green light gives your street corner an un-ignorable greenish hue. Mutant Weeds and Pharmacy Herbs uses the juxtaposition between nature and artificiality to articulate a message regarding the incongruous relationship between the two. Luzinterrupts create works of art that reflect an disturbingly plausible future, one we should focus on discouraging. Stats for Mutant Fauna Growth Trending: Older & Average
