Incandescent Light Bulb Scultpures by Dylan Kehde Roelofs

Light Bulb Sculptures by Dylan Kehde Roelofs

Artist Dylan Kehde Roelofs responds to the „soulless glow of low-energy bulbs“ with a series of self-made light bulbs and lamps.

These artworks are fully fledged lamps which indeed do give off light. Dylan doesn’t specify the life span of such a bulb, but he claims that his testing lamps are already glowing for 2500 hours. The price of these art lamps ranges from about 130 Euros to 870 Euros. Once burnt out, the filament can be replaced – for a fee.

I like these incandescent lamps. The style is beautifully steampunk’ish They would also fit very well in a Firefly set. ^_^

Steampunk keyboard

Steampunk is a genre of speculative fiction which mixes steam engine technology with science fiction. A very (in)famous example of this style is the hollywood movie Wild Wild West. The style is still very popular, and some people spend their free time creating working steampunk gadgets.

Steampunk keyboard

This keyboard is one specimen of modern technology with a steampunk look. It is based on an IBM Model M “Clicky” keyboard, manufactured in 1989. The linked site has many details on the production of this cool keyboard modification. There’s also a movie to prove that it is actually a working model.

Too bad that you can’t buy those things in a shop…
