Bootleg #02 (freestanding lamp) is part of an ongoing series of ‚functional‘ sculptures assembled from mass-produced commodities. Bootleg #02 is a freestanding lamp assembled from an adjustable microphone stand and clip, an extension cable, and LED lamp. The components each coincidentally conform to the same standard dimensions and accordingly fit together without requiring adaptation.
