Luzinterruptus’ Nonconsuming Shining Christmas Trees


Luzinterruptus’ Nonconsuming Shining Christmas Trees

We have been following the work of Luzinterruptus – the Spanish collective renowned for its provocative installations aimed to draw attention to major social and environmental issues – for a long time. Each year, just before Christmas, Luzinterruptus focuses on the waste of energy caused by Christmas lights through installations such as the Consumerist Christmas Tree, a luminous tree made of waste-filled plastic bags, made in Stoke-on-Trent, England, in 2015.

Fearing that 2022 will end in the usual celebration of consumerism, Nonconsuming Shining Christmas Trees (A Parasite Action for Streetlights) – the project that Luzinterruptus, with the usual intelligence, proposes this year – “parasitize” existing streetlights to create zero-power-consuming Christmas decorations.

With this clear objective in mind, Luzinterruptis has chosen to profit from existing streetlights,  attaching to each of them a luminescent cone made of fabric under which they put a potted firtree topped by a shining glass star, while other luminous cones form spaces people can step into, hang out, and relax at night. This way, we get a “squatter low-cost piece”, as the collective calls it, through which “we can all celebrate Christmas with no extra power consumption”.
Merry Christmas to all!
