Domino Light

HI-MACS, Copper
15cm x 60cm x 22cm
Domino light is a table light that is switched on using a rally of conductive copper dominos. When the domino rally falls 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 dominos can be arranged in any configuration as long as the rally starts and finishes at the base of the lamp.

We created Domino light to play with the act of switching it on. Because we are used to lights switching instantaneously it is easy to take for granted that even simple technological happenings are made possible by the physical properties of materials; In this case, the supreme conductive properties of copper.
