These three figures have that typical body posture smartphone users have: their heads are bent, faces lit up by their screens. Our smartphones are with us all the time – in bed, in the train, even on the toilet. They are an extension of our contact with others. As a result, we sometimes focus more on a virtual reality than on one another, something British artist Gali May Lucas makes painfully clear. You can experience the effect this has on others by sitting in between the figures. This sculpture was designed by Lucas, and executed by sculptor Karoline Hinz.

Absorbed by Light is available in 3 different designs.
