WATER LIGHT GRAFFITI
Water Light 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. The wetter it is, the brighter it gets.
Based on a idea as simple as bright, Water Light 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. To use water, which has neither shape nor colour, to draw light, is a magical experience, regardless of the public age or its artistic sensibility. This opportunity finally becomes a new kind of interaction with urban architecture. By mixing a natural element and technology, Water Light Graffiti’s users can even play with the weather or the evaporation speed. Water Light Graffiti also has a surprising role during rainy days and turn them into fireworks of damp LEDs.
With his Water Light Graffiti project, Antonin Fourneau realized a spectacular and poetic installation that manages to surprise and engage the passer-by in a refreshing way. We wish him all the best for his upcoming projects.
