Figure of speech that brings together two seemingly contradictory words. It expresses the inconceivable, accounts for the absurd and unites what logical reality opposes.

Is it possible to separate the light from the lamp? In her efforts to rethink lighting, Ioana Ispas has challenged conventional conceptions and created a beautiful and subtle lamp that is detached from the light it spreads in the room. It is only at the moment when the beam of light breaks that that the lamp and the light are obviously connected to each other.

Kan man adskille lyset fra lampen? I bestræbelserne på at gentænke belysning har Ioana Ispas udfordret konventionerne og skabt en smuk og subtil lampe, som er adskilt fra det lys, den spreder i rummet. Først i det øjeblik lysstrålen brydes står det klart, at lampe og lys er forbundet med hinanden.
