The archetypal lightbulb is familiar to most of us, and while there have been newer coiled models being manufactured recently, people tend to envision the mass-produced form of the smooth and rounded incandescent device. These Big Bubble Lights play with that iconic shape and manipulate it as if it was formed from soapy water, by a child with an extra-large plastic wand.
Alex de Witte has shaped massive light globes from transparent glass that take lengths ranging from 80 centimeters to 110cm. They're oblong, asymmetrical and oddly bulbous in some cases, contributing added whimsicality on top of their blow-up scales. The Big Bubble Lights dangle beneath curling cords for a playful look of lightness, despite their bloated silhouettes.
