Retro-Futuristic Lighting

John Stephenson has been making lighting sculptures since the 1980’s. He likes to reconstruct fixtures from various car parts from the 1930’s-1960’s to make retro forms representing the “future.”

He calls his work “combines” because he takes automobile lights and mechanical parts (like the speedometer) and electrical (like the clock) for a finished piece that has a 1950’s sci-fi look. He refers to his work as “biomorphic (human, aquatic, avian, insect) references with modernist era futuristic fantasies.”
