Domino Light

Domino light is a table light that is switched on using a rally of conductive copper dominos. The dominos can be arranged in any configuration as long as the rally starts and finishes at the base of the lamp. When the dominos fall, an electrical circuit is completed which switches on the light. There is a ‘rocker’ domino in the base of the lamp to start the rally and a ‘receiver’ domino to mark where it finishes. Within the lamp there is a space to store dominos that are not in use.

The lights plays with the moment a light is switched on, making it less instantaneous and creating a more tangible relationship between electricity and materials. With so much technology around us in our daily lives it is easy to take for granted that even simple things such as turning on a light are made possible by the physical properties of materials.
