A wall lamp that reacts to movement and a table lamp that’s powered by touch. These two objects need your presence in order to give light.
The closer you get to the wall lamp, the brighter the light becomes. Standing still for too long or walking away from its reach, will cause the light to fade out.
Touch the table lamp to slowly charge it with light. The color becomes stronger the longer you hold. If you don’t make contact, the color will dim and the lamp needs to be recharged with your touch.
Presence is a direct and intimate way of interacting with light. Both objects encourage the user to stay active. You definitely need to be present and perhaps also a bit patient.
