French Tech Artists Create Beautiful Water-Controlled LED Graffiti Wall

Last month Digitalarti Artlab artist-in-residence Antonin Fourneau premiered his “Water Light Graffiti,” a digital graffiti wall made of tiny water-sensitive LEDs, in a public square in Poitiers, where locals were invited to test his creation with water guns, sponges, brushes, and various other water-dispensing instruments.

Between July 22-24 residents of Poitiers could try out the graffiti light wall, with a little help from the Digitalarti Artlab team and local graffiti crew Painthouse. Footage of the beautiful and inexplicably not deadly water-and-electricity digital graffiti display is about as mesmerizing as you’d expect.
