My New 9/11 Lamp

Everybody's all freaked out about 911 and they forget that life was normal before it happened. Whatever normal is.

"the lamp contains two rotating films inside its clear plastic encasing. the inner one depicts the pre 9/11 skyline of the southern tip of manhattan, nyc complete with the statue of liberty and the twin towers. the faster moving outer film has images of hot-air balloons, sailboats, helicopters, para-gliders and a passenger jet on a transparent background. when lit, this creates the impression of the crafts on the outer film moving in front of the skyline in the back."

The weblog has a link to a motion animation and also a flickr file. Anyway, here is the link.
