's Collection of Light 120
corresponds to the number of LED lights that together constitute a lamp. This collective arrangement honors each individual LED, which is labeled in detail and displayed like the insects of a proud entomologist (the lights are housed in refurbished 70 year-old insect collection drawers from the Museum of Natural History in Stockholm). Whether fine art or hobby, collecting simultaneously values the harmony of many and the significance of one.
