Radioactive Ghost Suit Installation: No, the Aliens Have Not Arrived
September 5th, 2011
No, these aren’t aliens or anything like that, but this art installation by Luzinterruptus is pretty spooky. The anonymous artist group put together this haunting installation for the Hamburg Dockville Festival. It’s supposed to remind us of the dangers of nuclear power.
Luzinterruptus is a Spanish collective that is known for creating guerilla LED light installations in Madrid. This installation is called Radioactive Control and consists of 100 decontamination suits that are propped up like scarecrows, each one is illuminated with LEDs giving that ghostly look. This particular installation rattled the crowd of festival attendees. You can walk through this rural field and see them up close and personal.
This installation will stand for 30 days. It’s fitting that Germany announced that they will abolish nuclear power by 2022.
