The theme of the festival was ‘reading’, so Luzinterruptus was asked to recreate a earlier piece they’d done in NY called, Literature vs. Traffic. The month-long install covered a large strip of Federation Square with 10,000 books outfitted with little light bulbs. For thirty days, people had the opportunity to pick through books that were discarded & donated by libraries, that overflowed out over public spaces and into the streets.
