Strange and whimsical, Headlight by Stephen Shaheen, an artist based in Brooklyn, New York, is an installation that revolves around miniature light bulb people. They have been cleverly sculpted to depict a desperate attempt at illuminating their light bulb heads. While two appear to have succeeded in doing just that, two other sculptures haven't. One sits in sad defeat as another crawls blindly away from its source of power.

Each figure in Headlight by Stephen Shaheen measure 24 inches. According to the artist's website, his sculptures span "both manual and digital processes, and employs materials as diverse as repurposed found objects, marble, and recycled denim fiber." There is an adorable disconnect between the seemingly organic light bulb creatures and the necessary energy required to keep them alive.
