“Seeing this gradation and diversity of structure in one small, intimately related group of birds, one might really fancy that from an original paucity of birds in this archipelago, one species had been taken and modified for different ends” wrote Charles Darwin in his book The Voyage of the Beagle. What Darwin thought were completely different species of birds, which he collected during his voyage on the Beagle, in fact turned out to be different members of the same species. Yet their remarkable differences, especially of the beaks, fascinated Darwin and helped him cement the ideas of transmutation of species and Evolution.

This work is inspired by old type of incandescent light bulbs, those smart devices that can produce light from electricity :) First incandescent lights were made in the early and middle 19th century and are the type of light bulb that Thomas Edison spent so much time on in the 1870s. It was the first light bulb that could be used in houses because of its low costs and sufficient reliability. It was bright enough that people could work and read easily at night and because of that It was used to light stores and streets so people could travel around after dark. This invention really changed the world :) I've mixed vintage look of incandescent light bulbs with bold, contemporary aesthetics to make a design that has nostalgic feel, but still have positive meaning.
