When a volatile droplet is deposited on a floating swellable sheet, it becomes asymmetric, lobed and mobile. We describe and quantify this phenomena that involves non-equilibrium swelling, evaporation and motion, working together to realize a self-excitable spatially extended oscillator. Solvent penetration causes the film to swell locally and eventually buckle, changing its shape and the drop responds by moving. Simultaneously, solvent evaporation from the swollen film causes it to regain its shape once the droplet has moved away. The process repeats and leads to complex pulsatile spinning and/or sliding movements. We use a one-dimensional experiment to highlight the coupled dynamics of slow swelling of and evaporation from the film and the fast motion of the drop, a characteristic of excitable systems. Finally, we provide a phase diagram for droplet excitability as a function of drop size and film thickness and scaling laws for the motion of the droplet.
