Pinokio Lamp

As a child I always admired the short animation (little did I know that it was Pixar) of two lamps Mother and Son went alive. Here is a little flashback from am anamorphic project called Pinokio Lamp. The iconic Anglepoise lamp has been given a new lease of life by students at the University of Wellington. They’ve transformed the inanimate desk light into Pinokio, an object that expresses a range of movements and behaviours, and demonstrates an awareness of its environment by responding to external stimuli.
