Robinet


Robinet captures a surreal moment where water and electricity seem to mix. By juxtaposing water and electricity, the user might feel useasy about the compulsion to turn the tap. However, no water is involved in the design. Instead all the associated visual references are intended to shift the focus to the power supply rather than the light itself. As with Arossoir the hope is that people might become more conscious of the energy they are using.

Working prototype designed and built by Becky Miller.
Materials: hose pipe, brass tap, tungsten lightbulb, standard electric components.
