Sooo…. this showed up in my inbox last week. Obviously, I wouldn’t dare deprive you of such subversive artistry. Plus, c’mon, it’s pretty dang funny, right?
The Good Boy and Good Puppy lamps are by a UK artist and designer who simply goes by the moniker “Whatshisname“. Designed for the Art Below exhibition in London, they were ultimately banned for being “too offensive”. They’re available in limited editions of 100 (Good Boy) and 200 (Good Puppy). Mostly, the fact that you have to step on a turd (something I generally try my utmost to avoid) to turn the light on makes me giggle.
What do you guys think? Funny? Offensive? Can you think of a space where these lamps might actually work?
