23Panic at the disco


Well, you can tell by the way I use my walk 
I'm a woman's man, no time to talk 
Music loud and women warm, I've been kicked around
Since I was born
And now it's alright, it's okay
And you may look the other way

We can try to understand 
The New York Times' effect on man
Whether you're a brother or whether you're a mother
You're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Feel the city breakin' and everybody shakin'
And we're stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Ah, ha, ha, ha, stayin' alive

Panic at the disco is an interactive installation by the Eindhoven designer / artist Lucas Maassen. The project is based on a eureka experience during a party where a little plastic disco lamp accidently slipped off a table and started to follow its own path. Just a couple of beers and a little drop of imagination were necessary to see this hopeless floundering ball as an incredible light obstacle.

As well as being a personal fantasy, ‘Panic at the disco’ is also a protest against over consumption and the plastification of our society. They are the balls from the plastic soup that seek revenge. It's time to panic.

Lucas Maassen (Eindhoven, 1975) lives and works in Eindhoven. He studied at Design Academy Eindhoven and since then has started his career as an independent conceptual designer. His work has been exhibited in museums all over the world such as MoMA New York, Grand Palais Paris, Vitra Design Museum Weil am Rhein, Taiwan Design Museum Taipei and the van Abbemuseum Eindhoven.
