Virtual and real

Through this project we want to create a lamp that can reflect nowadays society. Special effects, in movies and videogames, even more and more realistic, reduce the border between the real world (even less real) and the virtual one (even more present). Everyday we read news that sounds like movie scenes, where young people commit terrible crimes as if they had lost their touch with reality. Our lamp is a frame in which a likely posy of roses is projected. Actually, it is just an image, a virtual representation of it. On the contrary, the glass flowerpot, perceptible just for a weak fake shadow on the canvas, is real. The same light that project the roses and goes across the vase, actually present on the scene, makes possible this effect. This lamp, in which virtual and real melt and mingle, is meant to represent the metaphor of our world.
