About the Work

WaterLight, is a device that provides 45 days of light using only salt-water. This device, is also capable of charging small appliances such as a cell phone or a radio via a USB port. Perfectly suited to seawater, the device also responds to fresh water mixed with salt and even – in emergency situations – urine. The Wayúu’s cultural heritage is further reflected in the waterproof design. Decorated with traditional patterns of power, the wooden surface draws inspiration from the ancient art of ‘Kanas’ weaving, with stylised geometric figures representing the sea, fauna and flora of the natural environment. Meanwhile the strap, created by a ‘Eünün’ – the craftswomen of the community – stays faithful to its artisan roots. WaterLight has been created as a long-lasting, 100% recyclable product. Designed to function for 5,600 hours – which equates to over 230 days or 2 to 3 years of use.
