“I ♥ U Lamp” Capacity 2011
The I ♥ U Lamp was inspired by the concept of “the capacity to love”. To get to the root of it’s meaning, I explored the genealogy of family trees. The connection we have with our families comes from a rich history that is well rooted and keeps growing. I am fascinated by the ways in which people declare their love for each other in the past and in our digital present. Today, texting your love is as poetic and honest a gesture as carving it into a tree. The lamp is a translation of both these worlds, and a representation of the physical form of love, which symbolizes the beginning of a new family tree. The lamp is designed to be personalized by its owner. Declare your love with the I ♥ U Lamp.
