luzinterruptus forms interactive rain canopy in taiwan with 2,500 illuminated condoms

 

luzinterruptus draws attention to the value of water thorough an immersive, public installation in the taiwanese city of kaohsiung. within two outdoor walkways, the anonymous artistic group has suspended 2,500 illuminated condoms from a structural grid, forming large, luminous ‘droplets’ that surround visitors.

while luzinterruptus has previously installed ‘rain interactive’ in the cities of london and madrid, this latest work highlights taiwan’s suffering from severe droughts, and draws attention to its agricultural system — which strongly depends on irrigation. more than 2,000 condoms have been filled with blue colored water and suspended at varying heights from a net overhead, forming a luminous expanse for visitors to walk through and interact with. subtly glowing by night, the water-filled orbs transform the space into a multi-sensory space suitable for all audiences. invited by pier-2 art center, the artists spent 14 days installing the piece alongside more than 20 volunteers.
