The half life lamp by Joris Laarman is apparently powered by living, bioluminescent hamster cells. Don’t worry, no furry rodents were harmed in the making, the lamp is said to be made from an old line of Chinese hamster cells. There isn’t much information available about it yet, however it is part of a show that is opening today at the Friedman Benda Gallery in New York. [via inhabitat]
