The lamp is part of her Vanitas for a Contemporary Society series of objects, inspired by 17th century vanitas paintings, which served as reminders of the transience of life and the certainty of death.
The Jewels and Joules exhibition presented work that is both designed and made by design studios in Eindhoven, Netherlands.
Here's some text from Dumoncel d'Argence:
Everyday alarming information all seem to merge into one conclusion: our world in unrelentingly going forward to its end. The contemporary Vanitas are melancholically questioning the fate of our society. They are conveying a disenchanting vision of our world, celebrating the pleasure of what is now while meditating on its fragility. The massive copper cable gets loose and ramifies into nothingness. The light bulb itself dangles from a thin copper; the whole object freezes in time its decaying process.
