Sunlight, rain, prism
In collaboration with Sornrapat Patharakorn
Bangkok’s weather is one of the factors that the lifestyles inside and outside of buildings are very separated. Field of rain invites people to take a walk between pillars of glass and water, relieving the rush of being outside and reconsider their relation to the urban context outside of the buildings, as how rain and sunlight are also the sources of life.
Field of Rain is an urban art proposal which aims to turn Bangkok’s natural elements into a light Installation using glass tubes in which the rain water can fill in and disperse Bangkok’s sunlight into spectrums, which utilises and relies passively on natural element. The middle prism will act like a hand of clock rotating slowly directing light in to the other one. It will only happen when there is sunshine and enough rain. The other prisms are solid glass and disperse the light from the normal days, letting people see the colours of light they cannot normally see. The rain and the sun both share the parts completing the prism installation and creating a semi-artificial natural phenomena.
