Being / Lamp

Being
Being

http://vimeo.com/22938936.Being is a lamp that reacts to human stimulation. The lamp senses what is going on around it and responds accordingly. Although technology advances rapidly, interaction between people and daily objects is still most commonly carried out in a unidirectional manner; the objects usually play a passive role in the process of interaction. Being is a lamp that offers a simple interactive technique. This imbues it with vitality. The directional movement of the hand above Being determines the brightness of the light emitted and the shape of Being. The folded skin of Being expands and contracts to make it larger or smaller.
