A series of ceramic lamps made in response to the Perspective(s) lecture series that occurred from October 2020 - April 2021.
Though conducting the lecture series online meant losing the incomparable physical presence of the speakers and audience, it was the unexpected gained intimacy of seeing a small window into each speaker’s personal space and the consistent glow of the screen during these conversations that inspired me to make a series of lamps in response. Each lamp was handbuilt using Cypriot red clay, has a lampshade painted with looped zoetrope-style illustrations, and its own distinct shape that correlates to each of the six lectures.
