PREVIEW: Luzinterruptus: “Literature vs. Traffic”

For lovers of words and free thought, books are brilliantly powerful objects that seemingly glow in their eyes. Now, thousands of glowing books are literally paving the Ann Arbor roads for one night and one night only. On Tuesday, October 23, Liberty Street is shutting down for “Literature vs. Traffic,” a project put on by the anonymous Spanish public art installation group Luzinterruptus. After a week of hard work by the volunteers who are attaching the lights to 100,000 discarded books, Liberty Street is turning into a powerful, illuminated pathway for passerbys to ponder on (and even take a few books home) from 5-11pm on October 23.
