Two special lamps will have you talking about them inclusively at the dog park – the Pooping Dog Lamps from UK artist Whatshisname. It’s really a conversation starter duo. There is a bigger black dog and a smaller one so which ever you’d choose,you still got one pooping dog in your living room.
Good Boy lamp (2012) was designed as an item of everyday use that makes user uncomfortable with every use. The On/Off switch is shaped as a turd that needs to be stepped on.
Puppy is in its natural pose, looking around with a bit of surprise on her face.
Both lamps were supposed to be part of London’s the Art Below exhibition on London Underground stations. Even though organizers accepted the work, unfortunately London Underground banned it for being offensive. See poster below.
Creating the lamp takes about one month. Good Boy is available in limited editions of 100 worldwide.
