To explore race America and addresses its pitfalls through intricate visual compositions and alternate narratives, Devin Troy teamed up with Case Studyo for a politically actue "Colour in the Night".
The lamp design is actually cartoonish black ghost holding a candle, with the idea of playing on the derogatory slur that black people's darker skin tonr blends into the darkness of the night, and only white in the eyes is visible, a very cute ghost. The ghostly uniforms of the Ku Klux Klan inspired by the racially charged image dates back post U.S. Civil War period.
From the Studyo, “The history of ghosts and race goes even deeper; ‘Spook’ (derived from the Dutch word for ghost or apparition) was a disparaging term for black people used in the 1940s.”
Limited with only 100 pieces, this 28cm tall lamp coming with a custom made scree-printed box. See the detail in gallery above.
