The sculpture CANDY LAMP is a hybrid of futuristic houseplant, photobioreactor and floor lamp in which floating algae (Chlorella emersonii) circulate. The light sources inside the glass bodies enable photosynthesis and allow the cells, which colour the water green, to grow. The title CANDY LAMP refers to the experimental processing of biomass into sugar (glucose).
