Water Light Graffiti

Posted to Data Art  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

Water Light Graffiti is an installation by Antonin Fourneau that lets you use water and light as your painting medium.

The “Water Light Graffiti” is a surface made of thousands of LED illuminated by the contact of water. You can use a paintbrush, a water atomizer, your fingers or anything damp to sketch a brightness message or just to draw. Water Light Graffiti is a wall for ephemeral messages in the urban space without deterioration. A wall to communicate and share magically in the city.

Pretty awesome how the wall illuminates when a couple of buckets of water are thrown at it.

  • This is pretty awesome. I’d love to see it where the LED color was corellated with the temperature of the water.

  • A new face of graffiti that is really stunning and I think even those who don’t like graffiti paintings and label them as vandalism must agree that this particular kind of it is really impressive. I just read about the so-called Graffiti Panel that is about to be established here in Toronto to check the city walls and deem the paintings either art or vandalism. However, I am afraid the panel members might be prejudiced which would mean that each and every graffiti painting in Toronto could very easily be removed. Do they really think this is the best way to fight vandalism?

  • Great post & love the “graffiti” :) reminds me of a “graffiti artist” from London called “SER” who runs a “graffiti” company called http://www.graffitikings.co.uk go check him out :) he paints graffiti bedrooms, shops, cars, trucks infact everything even graffiti workshops WOW.
