'Chi Lamp'
Mia Lohe Chung
 
PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Yoga's holistic practices work on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual planes, boosting energy levels and helping one live more positively.

Attached to the body at a choice of locations, the battery is connected by a pulley string to a ring worn on a finger. As one advances through yoga positions, the string is pulled and the battery is charged.

To illuminate the closing meditation, the battery is taken out and clipped into the Chi Lamp. Seated in the traditional lotus position one is lit by one's own power. Whether it is a battery taking care of a flashlight, or an electric socket taking care of a lamp, for years the machines have taken care of themselves and of each other.

One can now take back that authority and drive machines with one's own power, controlling the amount of energy. To extend the metaphor still further: by practicing yoga, one is using one's own inner energy to control the energy around us
