Sculpture of wood, polystyrene glass and plastic. A wooden replica of the German Biber, a one-man submarine from World War II. The sculpture was painted with phosphor paint, which makes it glow in the dark and which gives an unreal, fairy-tale effect.
"This is not a lamp" was exhibited in The Dutch Bank in Amsterdam and in Arti et Amicitae in Amsterdam.

Assignment in the context of a manifestation about black inventors.

Lewis Latimer co-invented the lightbulb and was chosen as occasion for the installation. A timer switched the lights on and off every three minutes. Due to the phosphorized paint, the submarine was glowing in the dark.
