blocco 2003


giant notepad consisting of 5000 sheets of paper glued along the shorter edge with a lamp shape punched out in the centre. the giant pad rests on a base and is one metre tall. a dichroic GU5,3 50W beam light is located beneath the base, complete with transformer and wired plug; light passes through the opening in the centre of the notepad, projecting the shape of the light bulb onto the ceiling. the focal point between the block of paper and the light source is reduced by removing sheets: the outline is modified as it gradually becomes less focused. the pages can be used for drawing, colouring, writing, expressing personal creativity or making plans. pages that illuminate one by one or that magically combine to reflect light. the notepad can also be used as a table, nightstand or stool.
