A Pattern of Photosynthesis

And they are back! I absolutely love Luzinterruptus' work, and cannot wait for them to conjure another one of their magic tricks.
This time they are growing grass in synthetic light. See to believe:


This is what their blog says about this  pupil-dilating concept. [Madrid]
'So much light emanates from the new crosses that the environment that surrounds each pharmacy, is permanently tinted a deep, vibrant and unnatural green color.Objectively speaking, one could say that the majority of the urban green spaces in our city, are more the result of erroneous illuminated sign rules than the commitment of our institutions to provide the city with places where you can be in contact with nature.
In addition to the obvious color change of the streets, the neighbors who live in the vicinity of 24 hour pharmacies, have watched impotently as every night their rooms become disturbing green places, in which life and the perception of what happens in them is altered, without being able to do anything to avoid it.
Without wanting to play down such a serious subject, but trying to approach it with a sense of humor, which never hurts, we carried out our installation Mutant weeds in which we recreated a not-too-distant future, in which a new and hardy species of photosensitive plant, grows in the asphalt around the pharmacies, nourished by the photosynthesis of its powerful “low” light.'
Literally shedding light on a subject, isn't it? Their interventions are only seen at night-time, but they make such an impact. The most impressive bit about Luzinterruptus' exhibits is that the interventions are not just the artist's portfolio, but they become a part of their immediate environment. It is almost like the blades of neon tubes nudged the concrete to give them a little space. Some of them are so beautiful that I'm sure the city dwellers wouldn't mind leaving them in their place.
