Literature Versus Traffic, 10,000 Glowing Books in the Streets of Melbourne, Australia

Light versus Traffic by Luzinterruptus

This past June, Spanish art collective Luzinterruptus brought “Literature versus Traffic,” an installation of 10,000 LED-lit books, to Federation Square in Melbourne for The Light In Winter festival. The books, recently retired from area public libraries, were given a second life as a glowing river that flowed through the square and into a nearby street. On the final day of the installation, onlookers were invited to take the books home.
