“Radioactive control” is an outdoor installation which addresses, in a somewhat humorous tone, the paranoia which we are suffering from the escape of radioactive material in Japan, bringing into question the safety systems at the nuclear power plants.
Conceived by Spanish collective Luzinterruptus for the Dockville Festival in Hamburg, Germany, it took 6 days to install. The project features an army of 100 mysterious, illuminated radioactive figures, which seem to have advanced threateningly on the natural environment in which they are positioned. The intention of the piece was to invite reflection regarding the use and abuse
of nuclear energy, cheap in economic terms, but which can cause grave secondary effects for the environment and health, forever irreversible.
