Table Lamps, Made of Industrual Waste
Prototype, 2011

Something That Once Worked.

Nakadai Co. Ltd., which handles industrial waste, proposes and sells the object that was once industrial waste as a new material to creators. There is a wide variety of objects in the Nakadai treatment plant, but their functions and roles are no longer known there. So they could be observed as just an object.
This is an experimental work that I tried to transform the meaning of these objects by painting the color on it and put the electrical parts to be the lighting. I chose the objects that used to be a machine of some kind with an interesting face. The act of recognizing just an object that has been erased from its function as an object with a purpose was already a paradigm shift, and the act of putting color on it made me feel even a kind of immorality.
