Studio Luzinterruptus was invited in September at the Lux Festival in Besançon (France) to imagine a luminous and dramatic installation. Radioactive Control is an artwork that they’ve produced in 2011 for the Dockville Festival in Hamburg but that continues to resonate in 2015. After the drama of Fukushima and the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (which are in their 70th anniversary this year), it seems that nothing has really changed concerning the volume of used nuclear energy in the world.

For this and many other reasons, these artists thought it was appropriate to give life again to their menacing army of radiactive creatures. During the 4 days of the festival, their 150 luminous figures martially marched propelled by the wind. And, though they offered a much more dramatic spectacle at night, they also interacted with all those who visited the event during the day.
