‘beings packaged in light’ by spanish artists luzinterruptus is an installation of human shadows.
using 100 inflatable dolls dressed in black and packaged inside gigantic white garbage bags,
luzinterruptus strategically placed points of light to achieve the effect of authentically trapped shadows.
installed inside the interior garden of the V&A museum in london as part of the winter light commissions,
the original idea was to have the figures standing so that they seemed to be living beings in distinct postures.
however, the strong night winds gave an unexpected aspect to the installation, and it was instead converted
into a dramatic cemetery of shadows waiting to be buried.
