Mutant Weeds, the latest guerrilla lighting installation by Luzinterruptus, is a comment on environmental pollution. Instead of dimming the green illuminated signage that denotes the presence of a pharmacy, the city of Madrid allows such lights to shine more brightly, thereby ensuring that the surrounding area is bathed in a green glow. Using fluorescent sticks formed into blades of grass, Luzinterruptus planted a garden of the near future, where a new, photosensitive species grows up from the sidewalks, nourished by the lights.  – by sabine7 / April 2, 2012

I am sharing this because of this installation’s statement on environmental pollution (and the fact that I have always been obsessed with neon).  – j. quigley
