A Lamp / lámpa

Susanne de Graef - The rhythm of light

A day begins,
the sun rises.

The sun starts her daily rhythm,
she rises and she sets,
This is a never-ending story with
a beginning and an end,
it repeats itself every day.
The light we use in our houses is very static,
almost like it’s something that’s frozen,
But light is not something that is static,
it lives.
Light is movement,
it has its own rhythm.
I designed a lamp with its own rhythm.
The user decides the rhythm of the lamp by
moving the lamp up and down,
the layers mingle,
the light get’s diffuse and the layers turn into
a game of colours.
