Where there is light, there is life. When you switch on
the lamp, it provides you with light. You provide it with
the generating power it needs to grow.
Similar to living organisms, this lamp contains all the
essential "mechanisms" that will enable it to develop.
All it needs is energy and it starts creating its own lampshade.
It knits it slowly around the lamp, pausing only when the light
is off. Its growth places it beyond the bare utilitarian
necessity of artificial light. The lamp becomes an animate
part of space, an existence in its own right.
