UFO lamp beams up cattle, beams down cool


Now this is one piece of DIY home art that oozes otherworldly style. Created by artists Jason Dietz, these Alien Abduction Lamps will be featured at the Bay Area Maker Faire May 22-23, reports Make magazine.

Standing at 5-feet 5-inches tall, the paranormal pop culture lamps are made out of recycled glass tubes, light diffusers and acrylic rings. They hold 10 gallons of water each, and use a series of different lights with an air pump that produces the tractor beam bubbles. Dietz says, "the theme is a cow being abducted out of a grassy pasture - look carefully to see the cow in the giant plasma tube."

Check out the lamps in action in the video after the jump.
