located in the heart of athens, a small street within the monastiraki area is host to a lighting installation. by inviting users to donate their old luminaires, fixtures and lamp shades in order to transform the abandoned street of central athens into a homely space.  an abandoned shop was temporarily transformed into an open workspace for people to gather, observe and participate in the development of the project. a process of repairing, testing and waterproofing the lamps engaged volunteers that, in collaboration with greek creative studio beforelight, prepared more then 150 lamps to create a colorful ceiling over the street.
