Three images which I did not create, cut out of newspaper, taped to a vase to make light. Well okay, the "light" part is provided by electricity.

I used a glass vase is from Michaels and drilled a half inch hole into it. I used mismatched electrical parts to wire  this beast, but it's totally not a fire hazard... not at all... I know what I'm doing!

So I chose three and four tone pictures and used layers of paper to create the tones. The darkest colour is made by 3 layers of newspaper and hidden under the outside layer. While the lightest colour is simply the outside layer of plain paper. I cut each layer out of one piece of news paper and used double sided tape to attach the layers/pieces together.


monkey nipple.

The newspaper pieces are taped to the outside of the vase, but under a piece of white paper.
So when the light isn't turned on it is a very cool off white block.

light - off


The vase has two sides, the front has a skull, woman's face, and a shark.

Front - light turned on

The back of the vase has a very cool monkey, you don't think he's mad about being put on the back... do you?

Back - light turned on

Thanks for looking, have a great day Wink

That is so cool! I love how it's a surprise, it looks normal and then when you light it up it's all TOTALLY awesome.  You so get my vote Smiley

Oh my god, that is so rad! It reminds me of Donnie Darko. The therapist had a window with the cut out of a face just like that and I always wanted to recreate it!

I saw a very large light a few years ago, an artist used pages of a bible to make a three tone image on a large light which leaned against a wall (I forget what the picture actually was) it looked great when turned on, but when off it looked kind of like a big mess haha

I originally wanted to use brown tape, like other artists have done, but I couldn't find the right kind of tape, so I was looking around for other materials for about a week haha.

Wow, wow, WOW! I so totally want one! You've got the layers and the shades of the images so perfect, and I love the way the text of the newspaper appears sideways and boxed in the shark (dunno why, it was just a squeal-inducing triviality). Gah! Such detail in the cutting! And when it's off, the shape and white color made it look like a tame, minimalist piece of furniture... but it's hiding Uber Awesomeness!
