Radioactive Control by luzinterruptus

The installation Radioactive Control by Spanish collective luzinterruptus was created for the Dockville Festival in de Hamburg.  It demonstrates, in a humorous tone, the paranoia that we are suffering from since the escape of radioactive material in Japan, and brings into question the safety systems at the nuclear power plants. With luzinterruptus' mysterious army of 100 illuminated radioactive figures, encourage people to reflect upon the use and abuse of nuclear energy. 

Germany has been the first developed country to announce the total abandonment of nuclear energy by 2022, we know that this was not an altruistic decision and has a lot to do with the creation of new and innovative industries, which will make them pioneers in the market. But just in case they change their minds, we already know that what politicians legislate today, they change tomorrow with impunity, we wanted to simulate, for the festival, a life under the constant threat of nuclear accidents.  ~ luzinterruptus
