River Made Of More Than 10,000 Books

This gigantic river of paper, composed of more than 10,000 books, has been installed in the streets of Toronto as part of its Nuit Blanche.

Entitled Literature vs. Traffic, this installation was designed by the Spanish collective Luzinterruptus, which then offered visitors to take the books of their choice. This is what Luzinterruptus had to say about the installation - “We want literature to take over the streets and conquer public spaces, freely offering those passersby a traffic-free place which, for some hours, will succumb to the humble power of the written word.

They worked for 12 days together with more than 50 volunteers who helped them during the laborious installation process.
