Jurek graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw in 2007 and has a particular interest in lighting; for this project, she used two circular bands of plywood, 96 test tubes, and a ceramic socket. “The double glass cylinder recalls Art Deco forms in a contemporary way,” Jurek says. “And the use of ready-made objects references the work of Duchamp. The tubes are detachable and the lamp provides the opportunity for visual experiment by creating a variety of configurations and arrangements.”
