Unfinished / light switch


Fingerprints are always the remainder around the switch from human action and negatively affect the area around the switch. This ‘unfinished’ product turns the mess around the switch into a message that helps creating a meaningful atmosphere. As the marks begin to accumulate, the words begin to appear.
This product simultaneously kindles curiosity in the users and allows them to view a dirty trace as a natural mark that helps read the message. After all the trace has accumulated, the message states “Life is ongoing drama.” It helps create a meaningful environment by allowing the fingerprints and become a somewhat of a overlapping painting.
