Got it into my head to make a series of indoor lamps, using different lighting. The small one was shown at National Airport 1 March - 30 June 2011 as part of Artomatic Takes Flight. There's a multicolored LED lamp inside the box that gives it a psychedelic air.  The medium one looks completely different at dusk or at night compared to daytime: I used small, red LED lights to give it the inner glow. Inside the tall one  one is another multicolor LED light, which bounces off the glitter in the dark.
