This shadow cube is a lamp is a soul trap is a magic thingamajig

Twisted Shifter spotted this beautiful light sculpture by Anila Quayyum, a laser-cut cube lamp that completely changes the room into a magic mosque. In her own words:

With this large scale patterned wood project I explored intersections of culture and religion, the dynamics and interpretation of space and sight as it threaded through cultures and emerged as varied expressions that redefine themselves with the passage of time. In this piece, a motif that is believed to represent certitude is explored to reveal its fluidity i.e. the geometrical patterning in Islamic sacred spaces. This project is meant to uncover the contradictory nature of all intersections; which are simultaneously boundaries and also points of meeting.
