1 min 17 secSingle channel / Digital Video / Colour / Silent

A hanging lightbulb socket suspended from a ceiling is shown from three different viewpoints. Each shot is separated by black. The shadow of the empty lightsocket and the black screen suggest the ‘lightbulb’ of the title is in fact offscreen.
