The anonymous artist group ‘Luzinterruptus’ is back again, this time in Caracas, Venezuela for the urban festival 'In the Middle of the Street’ that pays tribute to the coexistence of public spaces.
This piece entitled 'Portable River’ consisted of 2,000 transparent illuminated bags that housed miniature aquariums. For one night only viewers could come gaze at these tightly packaged ecosystems and were encouraged to carry them home at the end of the night. It was meant to open up the dialogue about the precious element of water itself and the urgent topic of privatization of water from big companies, especially in cities.
Alexa Meade and Sheila Vand collaborate to create these human paintings, not using the typical medium like canvas, but real live bodies submerged in milk, covered in paint and photographed to appear as an oil painting, so cool!
