At first sight, it looks like a meticulous construction that was created with the passion to every single detail and impressive knowledge about technology and design. However, when this object shows its real usage, we are witnessing the transformation from the static figure with a captivating design to the micro-machinery of a lamp with kinetic attributes and artistic aesthetics. The unique piece of art and technology is created by Korean sculptor U-Ram Choe who is well-known by his artworks that implement the law of kinesiology, intricacy and functional design.
The “Insecta” Lamp is not only impressive from the static side. When switched, the device showcases elaborate set of five wing-like appendages. The kinetic function appears when the wings start to cycle through a gentle flapping motion.
