“TV remote control” by Philippe Kindelis -

The TV remote control uses the principle of water displacement and the conductive properties of water to connect different cables. It highlights principles and processes that the user can interact with. It is an exploration as to whether water and electricity can be put together to create a new narrative in the way we interact with technological products.

    Thing I like most is that it appears to completely obscure the TV they’re watching. Good make.

    Love the concept though wouldn’t evaporation mean you’d need to keep adding water otherwise you wouldn’t be able to turn on your tv?

    The remote is funny, but I want to know more about that chair. Does anyone recognize it?
