Over the last 30 years more than 50% of Madrid’s public water fountains have been dismantled. Luzinterruptus [3]‘ latest intervention, dubbed “Drinking Water Running Through the Streets”, uses the public space as a site to criticize the administration and demand action.

The group has collected over 200 glass vials that previously contained the Infantrini multiple vitamin supplement. After spending four months slowly gathering up the used vessels, Luzinterruptus [3] cleaned and transformed into a luminous installation that sheds light on a public infrastructure problem.
