“We recreated our Interactive Light there, a piece we carried out in 2013 in Campo de la Cebada in Madrid.
This time, as the festival’s theme revolved around water, we wanted to highlight the vital need of water and how abhorrent it is to privatize it and trade it for the profit of just a few. To achieve our goal, we created large drops of light. In order to do this, we filled condoms with water. We thought this as being conceptually appropriate, as condoms are designed to preserve in them the true source of life…
The formal solution was the same as in La Cebada, but this time we used 3,000 condoms, including extra large and extra strength condoms, which we filled with blue water to turn them into large drops having the shape and the touch of silicone breasts – quite pleasant to touch and squeeze.
We created a cubic space with these – framed by lighted, hanging drops – where one could dive in and caress the elements while listening to the gentle sound of the water as it moved”.
“This installation was placed in front of Waterman’s main entrance so people would enter it through the installation. We made it grow with the help of the employees from the center and visitors of all ages who came to us intrigued about the strange work we were carrying out – after their confusion, they quickly offered us their help. And there were not just adults, but also children who contributed their bit to this laborious setup process”. (Luzinterruptus)
