This prototype is part of a research project led by the French artist Antonin Fourneau about water-sensitive materials. Waterlight Graffiti is an interactive work of art composed of thousands of LEDs that allows you to express yourself on a luminous surface with water. Using a brush, a spray or a sponge, the brightness reveals your message. Its concept is based on a simple principle of physics, using water as a conductor of electricity. In the manner of a switch, the bulbs light up at the slightest touch with water and go out as the water evaporates.
