Davide Groppi Edison's Nightmare Wall Lamp

Edison’s Nightmare is a salute to Edison’s* light bulb.

A salute to a dream that changed forever the way we live, taking from sleep hours the time to read and write.

It is about a classic light bulb nailed on the wall. Like a piece of art.

Simplicity is expressed with the gesture of hanging.

Nailing a lamp simplify immortalise an idea that changed the world.

At the same time is a violent and symbolic sign that stings our sense of responsibility towards the possibilities to live in the future.

Is the quotation of a symbol to a new life in the cultural transition where progress is about conservation of the past.
