Wow art installation: Literature vs Traffic – 10 000 books overflowing in the streets

Check out the latest urban installation of Spanish art collective Luzinterruptus made during Light in Winter  festival in in Melbourne, Australia. The theme of this year’s festival was “reading”.

Using 10,000 books that had been collected by the Salvation Army after being discarded from public libraries, Luzinterruptus began creating an intimate public space that encourages reading.

On the closing night of the installation, the books were offered up to the pedestrians, each allowed to choose their favorite books.
