With the enormous amount of light that make up the artwork 'Desire', the artists give you an idea of how much information your lips can pass on: "We use more than 1,500 warning lights. Everything was made by hand, which means that each step of the construction repeats itself more than 1,500 times."
UxU often brings a playful element to their installations, which can also be seen in 'Desire' if you look closely. From the side, the image of the lips disappears, and you see a heartbeat instead - our hearts beat faster with strong desires. But giving in to your desires can be dangerous: the red lights, much like a traffic light, are also a warning.
