LivingWater / LivingWater


A person needs 18 litres of water per day but we use much more.

LivingWater makes people aware of their water use. It responds directly to the use of water and symbolizes the environmental impact on the planet. When water is used efficiently a beautiful young plant will form, but when water is used inefficient or irresponsible it will wither.

LivingWater consists of two parts: a water meter and artificial plant. Water flowing through the water line is detected by the water meter, this data is send to the plant using a Wi-Fi connection. The colour and the form of the plant responds to the water use indicated by the water meter.
