Antonin Fourneau: Waterlight Graffiti
Interactive Light Installation
‘Waterlight Graffiti‘ is a project that aims to create a material made of thousands of LEDs which lights up when touched by water. When it touches the frame of a LED, water creates an electrical bridge bringing the power required to light up the LED embedded under the surface.
‘Waterlight Graffiti’s’ purpose is to be a new kind of reactive material to draw or write ephemeral messages made of light. This project enables anyone to graffiti the wall of LEDs with a basic environment-friendly atomizer.
‘Waterlight Graffiti’ is co-produced by Art2m.
