Creature lamp, by Owen Song

I am not very afraid of electricity, I am able to gut appliances, and make simple connections, install lamps and play with the clemas, but yes, far, far away from the liquid element. It will be for the paternal advice that they advised me again and again, in danger of death, not to approach a plug when leaving the shower, or to those movies of bad bad ones in which they threw a radio turned on in the bathtub in which it was soaked a poor unsuspecting ...

That's why I don't leave my amazement at this Creature lamp, designed by Owen Song, who not only does not shy away from water, but needs it to shine. With a design similar to a large fountain or fruit bowl, the water that is deposited inside acts as a conductor, transmitting electricity from a negative electrode to a positive electrode.

When the spilled water evaporates, the lamp goes out, so that we have a timer function Of the most natural. The more water is added, the longer it will take to turn off. Once consumed, the light gradually disappears.

Its fiery appearance is that of a strange indefinable creature, and emits a dim light, which makes it more of a decorative element than a source of practical lighting.
