t.e. 213made by rain - shawl, large
Made by Rain is an elemental concept in which rainfall is recorded on textile.
Is it possible to wear the weather? Dutch artist Aliki van der Kruijs asked herself how to capture the experience of rain. For this she developed her own technique called pluviagraphy. Using a film coating that is sensitive to water, it becomes possible to create a visual recording of rainfall on a filmed piece of textile. Whether it’s a soft drizzle or a tropical downpour, the type of rain creates a unique print.
Each Made by Rain shawl comes with a handmade notation of the location, date, time interval, millimetres of rain, and weather circumstances under which the pluviagraphy was done. This way, the textiles form a collection of weather data: visual recordings of a specific day in history.
