the glowing word

Spanish art collective Luzinterruptus flooded Melbourne's Federation Square for the month of June with 10,000 glowing books that flowed into a street below. Literature versus Traffic, an installation for the city's Light in Winter festival, was created from books taken out of circulation by area public libraries & affixed with LED lights. Taking over a public square and a lane on a busy thoroughfare, the illuminated pages created a temporary reading library that invited people to stop & browse. Words as fuel & vehicles.
