Forget Me Not is a reading lamp. After being switched on, the lamp closes slowly like a flower, obscuring and dimming its light over time. By touching one of its petals, the lamp re-opens and shines bright again. This involves its user in a constant dialogue about whether she still needs the given light, thereby reflecting on the limitedness of resources and the responsibility of making appropriate use. We deliberately designed it as a reading lamp. This provides a suitable context for the intended dialogue. Using the same idea for the main lighting would be annoying. http://vimeo.com/30893887
