“Unborn creatures of light” is a handmade art object using carefully emptied and hardened eggshells as vectors of light. This basic, organic matter, with only the help of light shining through it, turns into porous constellations of stars.
The idea that the universe was born from an egg is shared by nearly all ancient civilisations and cultures, and this project aims to embody this imagery. Every eggshell is unique and each one looks like a galaxy. The title of the work is also a reference to all the realms of existence and possibilities, inviting the viewers to step outside of their reality.
This model is a black circular ring composed of 59 eggshells and LED lights, and is designed to be mounted against a wall, for the viewer to be able to look straight at its details. The piece is best enjoyable in a dark or dimmed room to benefit from all its characteristics.
The process of emptying, cleaning, and hardening the eggshells is very delicate and requires a lot of time and discipline. The designer has also created handmade pieces which allow the user to manipulate the eggshells without altering the work.
Every model is a unique piece. The date stamped on the eggs references the moment the work was produced.
The product is delivered with 59 12V LED lamps. The cord is compatible with regular european 220V sockets.

About Youmna Geday Visit Showroom →

Youmna Geday (b. 1989 in Montreal, Canada) has a background in photography and an ongoing practice as a visual artist which questions origins and genealogy. Her first work as a designer, "Unborn Creatures of Light", is an extension of her artistic practice, in which she creates an analogy between the egg's symbolic and the creation of the universe. Youmna's interests as an artist and a designer are strongly linked to her Lebanese identity, nourrished by a strong passion for space and the universe. This combination of themes leads her to relate her research to one about different scales of origins.
