The Anonymous Art Collective Examines Waste and Consumption

The Plastic We Live With by Luzinterruptus

For years, Luzinterruptus has acted as an anonymous art collective, traveling around the world to create large-scale installations about the impact that we have as humans upon the natural world. Recently, the team took to France for the FAB Festival de Bordeaux, where they flooded the windows of an old Virgin Mobile megastore with plastic shopping bags, which are an everyday source of waste that many places–France included–are trying to phase out. Filled with lights, the bags spilled from the facade with a sense of urgency, as if they were taking over the structure. The installation glowed at night with the colors of the plastic like a beautiful but wasteful series of stained-glass windows. Worry not: The bags were recycled at the end of the festival.
