Rain (Wales) 2000

A temporary architectural structure that explores and celebrates the phenomenon of rain. This timber and plastic clad structure, refracted sunlight during the day and could be projected on at night. A tin roof amplified the sound of the falling rain, before conveying this to a collecting pool slid under the transient building. The structure recalls Hiroshige’s 1857 woodcut print Moon-Viewing Point, in the creation of a structure to memorialise the impermanent.

Commissioned by Oriel 31 Gallery, Powys, Wales. The structure was designed in collaboration with Acanthus Architects, Huntly.
