Välja on pandud üleni postmarkidega kaetud automakett.

“Luige Hummeri” idee sündis teeneka metsateadlase ja ökoloogilise mõtteviisi propageerija Heino Luige loost, kes 1988. aastal Austraalias viibides sai vihmametsade taastamise ühest mudelist inspiratsiooni Eesti Hapnikufondi loomiseks. Selleks plaanis ta trükkida seeria postmarke, mille müügihinnaks 1 USD topeltmark. Üks markidest pidi jääma ostjale tõestamaks tema asutajaliikme staatust, teine aga tuli idee levitamiseks edasi saata. Luik tellis kümneid tuhandeid paarismarke, kulutades sellele märkimisväärse osa isiklikke sääste. Kahjuks aga projekt ei käivitunudki korralikult. Heino Luik hukkus Tallinnas Paldiski maanteel 22. augustil 2007 kokkupõrkes liiklushuligaani autoga.

Viik ehitas Hummeri kergele puitkarkassile kinnitatud lainepapist ning umbes 35 000 margist. Installatsiooniga saab tutvuda lennujaama kõigile avatud osas, teisele korrusele viiva lifti vastas.

Käisin Lennujaamas Mairel vastas ning selline kena taies seisis seal.

Inglisekeelne lühikirjeldus www.tallinn2011.ee lehelt:

“Mr Luik's Hummer”

„Mr Luik’s Hummer“ in Tallinn Airport by Urmas Viik is a car model completely covered by stamps. The idea was born through the story of Heino Luik, a renowned scientist and environmental activist, who was inspired to create Estonian Oxygen Fund during a stay in Australia in 1988, where he learned about a revival model of rain forests.

To do this he planned to print a series of stamps for 1USD a double. One of the stamps should have been kept by the buyer to prove the status as a founding member, the other part should have been posted to spread the idea.

Luik ordered thousands of pairs of these stamps using a remarkable amount of private savings. Unfortunately the project never took off properly. Heino Luik was killed in a traffic accident in Tallinn on 22 August 2007 caused by a traffic hooligan, who was driving 120 km/h in the city.

Viik built the Hummer of cardboard on a light timber frame and 35 000 stamps. The installation is located in the public area of the airport across the elevator.
