Our Love of Anglerfish


When you see how absolutely CRAZY the concept of an Angler Fish is, its inevitable that we as humans would find them fascinating. There are very few predators in the wild that dangle a lamp off of their head in order to lure prey.

Here are a collection of Angler Fish creations.

Probably not for the kids room, but I appreciate the effort that went into this wicked assemblage light by Justin La Doux made of bicycle parts, knives, a shovel, and other objects. The piece was entered as part of the 2010 ArtPrize contest. (via my amp goes to 11)
