That was the original idea and it was to be called Baignade interdite. However, the lake’s characteristics, located over a bed of calcareous rocks, gave the water a milky color that didn’t allow us to see what happened underwater in spite of the light enveloping the bodies. So Luzinterruptus had to change the display on the go to adapt it to its real context.
Hence they had to improvise which is something quite common in our work method. So, helping themselves with some of the already purchased material, especially the latex gloves, they thought the idea over and turned it into a new display where the beings of light would be trying to come afloat or would be sinking (depending on one’s life experience): ¿Saliendo a flote? (“Coming Afloat?”).
