Wall of LEDs lets you paint temporary graffiti with water
Graffiti art can make the urban landscape way more beautiful and interesting, but some people object to permanent decorations on their buildings. Solution: Water Light Graffiti, by artist Antonin Fourneau, working in residence at Digitalarti Artlab. His wall of water-sensitive LEDs allowed visitors in Poitiers, France to create temporary masterpieces using waterguns, spray bottles, hoses, or just by throwing water out of a bucket.
This one in particular turned out great — an homage to the city of Poitiers and its landmarks.
Water graffiti makes the city beautiful, the city makes water graffiti beautiful … call it the water cycle. No, wait, that’s a thing already.
