THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL DOWSING STICK
Interactive Artwork

The search for water has been essential throughout human history. Whether digging for wells or searching for alien life, the pursuit of H2O, that elusive molecule so closely linked with life, often takes on an almost mystical aspect.

The extra-terrestrial dowsing stick is an interactive artwork that divines water beyond our planet. Suspended by strings, the stick changes direction every 30 seconds and fixes on planets where we thing H2O might exist, such as Mars or the moons of Jupiter and Saturn, as well as a number of exoplanets outside our solar system.

The motors are controlled by an Arduino chip which can calculate the exact position of the planets in real-time relative to time and position of the arwork itself (longitude, latitude).
