Attracted to Light is an art object/lampshade which narrates the erratic behavior of moths. The artist, Geoffrey Mann, uses long exposure photography and 3D software to map the movement of a moth stimulated by light and translates that path into a sculptural form using rapid prototyping (3D printing). The result is this wonderfully organic form.
Attracted to Light, Geoffrey Mann, 2005. Nylon, LED.
