Drinking Water Running Through the Streets (2012)
200+ empty glass bottles of Infatrini, a formula for underweight babies, collected over 4 months. The bottles were lighted blue to imitate running water.
“Luzinterruptus, an anonymous Spanish art group, turned four defunct public water fountains in Madrid into glowing versions of their former, working selves. The goal was to criticize the decrepit state of the city’s fountains, half of which, Luzinterruptus says, no longer work.”
“We wanted to say that water is necessary for life and that the fountains that are used for drinking and refreshing ourselves seem much more necessary and beautiful to us than those which are merely ornamental.”
