Designer Mike Thompson has designed an innovative light called “Blood Lamp” that as depicted by its name, generates power from blood.
For the lamp to produce light one must break off the top of the lamp, dissolve a tablet in the solution and use their blood to power the light. This creates a lamp that can only be used once and forces the user to consider the most important time that they need the light. It forces them to be more considerate and reflect of how wasteful we are with energy on a daily basis. There is also a deep metaphor in this as well where the blood in our bodies represents life and the energy we use everyday effects the world we live in somehow some way, thus effecting our quality of life. See, everything is cyclical. Check out Mike’s very interesting portfolio of work here.
