0 INSECT-LIKE Lamps By U-Ram Choe

To have a beautifully sculptured lamp is one thing but to have one embedded with CPUs, motors and LEDs and looking like some sort of an insect, well that’s just plain awesome.

Seen here are two pairs of insect-like lamps by Korean sculptor U-Ram Choe, who built the kinetic sculptures embedded with CPUs, motors, and LEDs which appears to be a combination of both part entity and part artwork. The lamps are titled Silver Insecta Lamp and Gold Insecta Lamp. When switched on, the lamps reveal an ornate set of five wing-like appendages that cycle through a gentle flapping motion. You can see how they work in the video below! All photos courtesy Gallery Hyundai. (via Artsy)
