VIDEO OF THE DAY: Water's Your Paintbrush, Light's The Paint

Here's a bright idea: an LED light wall that senses water, allowing anyone with a watergun, paintbrush, or bucket full of H2O to create a temporary work of public art.

The piece, called 'Water Light Graffiti', was created by French artist Antonin Fourneau. The wall is made up of thousands of boards with LED lights wired in place by hand. When water touches one of the LEDs, a sensor causes it to illuminate. A team of technicians worked on the project, which went through several testing phases before hitting the streets.

It went public for three days (July 22 to 24) in the city of Poitiers, France, where the public was allowed to play with the installation alongside the artist. Check out the video below:
