Posing in a Lamp Shade

There’s a strange photography exhibit in Austria, which consists entirely of an anonymous person wearing a lamp shade in various locations. The exhibit is titled “Die Lampe,” or “The Lamp,” and is apparently growing quite a following a fans.

The gallery has its own Facebook page where you can see many of the Lamp Shade photos. I ran the About blurb through Google translate and got:

“Stage fright refers to the tension, the tension and the stress of a lamp.”

So I guess that means… lamps stand out in the darkness. If you were a lamp– there’s nowhere to hide, everyone can see you. People depend on you, and expect you to perform at the flip of a switch. Just like being on stage? Very interesting.
