The Auto Lamp might not be the most practical light fixture to have in the home or office, but it is appropriate as an art installation. Created for the Scotiabank Nuit Blanche in Toronto, Canada, the Auto Lamp is an illuminatingly unique masterpiece. Made using an '85 Dodge Ram Van, it sports an array of punctured swirls that allow the light to seep from inside out in a glorious manner.

Created by respected Canadian artist Kim Adams, the Auto Lamp shows that anything can be converted into a thing of beauty, even run-down white vans. The artist might refer to Auto Lamp as "an oversized lamp for night owls" or a "lighthouse on land," but it is more than that. The Auto Lamp is a beacon of inspiration.
