Rain Under Lamppost


Projector, Mini PC
100cm x 300cm


A projector is mounted so half of the video image grazes the wall before it hits the floor. The video is controlled through generative software and replicates the action of falling rain, through the cone of light from a lamppost, here replaced by a projector. This work hints at volumetric space and the interstices between virtual worlds and reality, while creating a calm and reflective scene of watching rain pass through the light from a lamppost.
