The Luzinterruptus art collective group put on a vibrant in-street performance at Melbourne's Light in Winter festival. The Spanish team aimed to halt Australian traffic with over 10,000 abandoned books. The gigantic outpouring of novels, donated to Luzinterruptus by libraries and the Salvation Army, drew in massive crowds.
Thousands of mini lights shone on Luzzinterruptus' display. Illuminated phrases were read and evaluated by visitors who were invited to take books of their choosing home on the closing night of Light in Winter.
The groups blog shows just how well-received the gigantic presentation was as the onlookers danced and rejoiced in the heaps of paper. And so, the once discarded pieces of literature found new loving homes.
