As the last of the near-extinct filament bulbs, The Bulb Heads wander through the dark and invade public spaces so as not to fade into oblivion.
Two roaming silhouettes topped with huge vintage-style bulbs instead of heads, struggling valiantly against their planned obsolescence. Always ready to serve, they shine brightly and light up encounters, and communicate with their audience through flickering light.
It is always reassuring to follow a light in the darkness.
