Thought-Provoking Sculpture Installation 'Shines a Light' On The Effects Of Technology In Humans' Lives

Three people sit on a bench, totally immersed in their cell phones, ignoring one another’s presence. It’s an all too common scene. However, this time what we are looking at is not a real-life experience, but a genius piece of art. As part of the Amsterdam Light Festival, brand design agency Design Bridge created this thought-provoking installation Absorbed by Light.


The sculpture is the creative brainchild of Senior Designer Gali Lucas. She inspired by the juxtaposition of the connection and disconnection modern technology causes. To bring her vision to life, Lucas—who usually works in 2D—collaborated with sculptor Karoline Hinz, based in Berlin. Once the work was shipped to Amsterdam and assembled, Absorbed by Light came to life. As a commentary on the consequences of technology in our everyday lives, the piece sends a powerful message and asks us to reflect on our habits.


The artwork itself remains somewhat neutral, not pushing a positive or negative view on the subject, but instead reflecting a true to life situation. It’s up to us, as the viewers, to decide our interpretation. As people interact with the sculpture by sitting and taking their photographs, Lucas hopes to spark a dialogue concerning the role technology plays in our social interactions.
