Rolling Light

Unroll a lamp to brighten or dim its light.

 
 

A simple gesture controls the dimming or brightening of this light — unrolling it slowly reveals or conceals the light. Like an eclipse, the opaque peel blocks light when the cover is completely rolled around the cylinder.

Rolling the lamp across a table changes its physical location and proximity of the fixture to the user. It is an intimate action fitting for both solitary projects or social occasions. (2017)
