What could all of these people possibly be staring at?
It's a bird... it's a plane... it's—
It's designer Dennis Parren's "CMYK Lamp," which purportedly casts 3D shadows, on exhibit at the Design Academy Eindhoven's graduation show during Dutch Design Week. "It's like standing in the lamp itself!"
Parren discovered that the shadow lines are 3D by accident; hence the makeshift glasses. I'm struggling to envision it myself, since the designer notes that "I can't take 3D pictures, but I took some photos of enthusiastic people."
