Thermometer Lamp
Plexiglas, Steel, Microchip, LED lights, December 2005

I chose to combine two variables, temperature and light. I wanted to create a thermometer lamp, in which the temperature controlled the dimness and brightness of the light. The lamp would read the temperature of the room instead of the user’s touch. Ambient and artificial lights would determine the interaction of the thermometer. When the room is cold, I wanted the lamp to emit brighter light, and during the day when it is warmer, the lights would dim to conserve energy. Worked in collaboration with James Sears.
