Ensayo_08. Oscurecer un recorrido
Turning off the public street lighting along a particular route during an hour and a half on the night of 27 January 2011.
This project was commissioned for the opening of the «Lumens» exhibition series in 2011, which took place in several venues in the town of Valls in Tarragona as part of the Festes Decennals de la Mare de Déu de la Candela, a celebration that was originally linked to the notion of light as a symbol of protection. The commission was to carry out an unannounced intervention during the inaugural tour, in order to draw attention to the route shown on the exhibition brochures. The intervention deactivates the safety aspect of the street lighting, and lets the absence of light point the way.

A police report documents the action and the police operation that was put in place to guarantee public safety.
