london-based irish artist finn magee has created this fantastic flat life series of common household items. here’s the amazing part: these items on posters are embedded with led lights and become illuminated when they are plugged into a socket!

what a wonderful surreal, original, innovative, imaginative thing to see hanging on your wall everyday. it doesn’t look like these are in production right now but hopefully they will be made available soon!

see more intriguing things on finn’s website.
