Arossoir


An electric watering can which mimics the rythmn of its common counterpart. By way of rechargable batteries and a tilt switch concealed inside the body, and a blub in the spout, light can be poured out for use. When the batteries are empty, plug in at the mains to recharge. As with Je ne suis pas un robinet the hope is that people might become more conscious of the energy they are using.

Supplied with mains charger and dip-coated steel wall hook.

Working prototype designed and built by Becky Miller.
Materials: 9 litre plastic watering can, LED lightbulb, LI-ion battery, standard electric components, UK mains charger, dip-coated steel wall hook.
