desc of blood lamp
What if power came at a cost to the individual?

The average American consumes 3383kwh of energy per year. That’s equivalent to leaving the light on in 4 rooms for a whole year. The simple flick of a switch allows us to power appliances and gadgets 24/7 without a thought to where it comes from and the cost to the environment.

For the lamp to work one breaks the top off, dissolves the powder, and uses their own blood to power a simple light. By creating a lamp that can only be used once, the user must consider when light is needed the most, forcing them to rethink how wasteful they are with energy, and how precious it is.

Why? we've worked forever for the convenience of these electric products, and we shouldn't have to bleed to use technology produced 200 years ago (that we pay for). but in all honesty we should cut our self once for every 2x4 in our house to get vengeance for the "cost" to the environment. i can't wait to get 20 lashes to drive my car to work.

How would this prove how much energy we waste?

because we could generate enough energy to light a room with a few drops of blood...

Pretty sure that the energy isn't coming from the blood itself. If we could do that, we wouldn't need coal plants, windfarms, or solar stuff.

I'd hazard a guess that the blood is acting as a connection between two wires, completing the circuit to the light.

it's a chemical reaction. The light is full of luminol which reacts with blood and generates light and energy.

I suppose that could work. Although, it seems more wasteful than just having a normal light. I mean, the process for making luminol doesn't have an awesome yeild, and the byproducts are useful for little else than throwing away. Not to mention that it looks like you'd have to make a whole new lamp every time you used up the luminol in one. Glass melts at around 3000 degrees C which would burn up quite a bit of fuel.

Also, not sure but I don't think luminol is bright enough to really light up anything.

I thought it was drawing attention to the idea of wasted energy by making the wasting of that energy have a more personal cost.

If this is indeed the case, it seems like standard artsy crap.

the point is that you'll use this lamp only when you need light very very badly..

I like the idea of pulling a switch up rather than cutting my finger to drop some blood into a bulb. May be just me.

You could use pigs blood. The point here is that we don't efficiently use energy, not how convenient the method in the display is.

because every time we'd need to light the room, it'd cost our own blood which we'll remember losing

as opposed to mindlessly flicking a light switch on

But women lose blood every month without any effort, they can use these lamps like it's nothing!
