Dream Yourself A World… Sculptural Lamps

These are fully functional lamps, but they could easily pass for purely decorative sculpture… The concept of “Dreamworlds” as they are called was invented by Dutch artist Marij Van der Ham. I came upon her work through a former student of hers, who told me that not only you can order a lamp made to order by your own specifications, but also that Mrs. Van der Ham gives workshops in which you can learn to create your own Dreamworld. Since I live in Belgium, geographically close to the woman’s atelier in the Netherlands, I might just do this in the holidays…

About quantumphysica

My name is QuantumPhysica The Insane, but you can call me QP. I am insane, admitted to a mental hospital in Belgium, and waiting for a decent diagnosis at the moment. Once I was a physics student with goals in life and what more; now I'm simply the patient of Room 93. Ever wondered what life is like in the psychiatric ward? I'll tell you everything you ever wanted to know... I am... particularly twitchy of personality. But I also am genuinely interested in everything. There is nothing that doesn't interest me, really. Everything, from quantum computers to fashion and cars to traveling... I also give advice. On anything. No taboos whatsoever. And I make lists of things...
