Technology has reached a level of sophistication that affords the now simple possibility of altering a light fixture's color with a tiny mechanism and a mere switch. The Colour Injector Lamp boasts the ability emit a broad and changing spectrum; however, this is done in a playfully manual way.

Dangling down from the colorful pendant lamp are three separate plastic tunes that connect to one syringe each. The transparent pistons are filled with red, blue and green dyes that can be administered freely in different proportions, combinations and concentrations. The ink feeds through the complex-looking Arduino micro controller that transmits this interactive adjustment. Taras Sgibnev's Colour Injector Lamp begins to glow in one of a full rainbow of hues through its cylindrical LED-illuminated lampshade.
