Copy Light Factory

In collaboration with: Copenhagen Brains
Year: 2005

Copy Light Factory is a workshop producing Copy Light – cube shaped lamps made of translucent paper with photocopied motifs of various well-known lamp designs. However, the owner is free to change the image to a lamp design of his/her own choosing. Thus Copy Light seeks the borders between the copy and the original. As a copy of a copy Copy Light turns into something new: an original lamp that communicates the problems of the current copyright system. The lamps are constructed and hung in the gallery as they are made, gradually filling and illuminating the space.

Copy Light was developed in the context of Copyshop.
