A few years ago, on a trip to Spain, I was lucky enough to stumble upon the amazing public art installations by a group calling itself Luzinterruptus. I try to keep up with their wonderful and imaginative projects around the world, but I rarely get to actually see them IRL. Somehow I missed another marvelous project this Spring in Bilbao, Spain.
The installation, titled “Denboran Zehar” or “Through Time”, utilized 5,000 recycled paper notebooks collected from area schools and then arranged in a building atrium for 25 days. The aim was to let time and weather naturally change the illuminated notebooks as part of the Bilbao International Literature Festival 2017.
