ACCENTUATING RAIN

CHALLENGE

In this tropical region with prolonged monsoon, People have been romanticizing the rain since the beginning of time. The relationship between man and rain has always been a special one. Revolving around the beauty of rainy moments, there are poems and stories. The rain is an absolute delight even if it disrupts us going to work on time or floods the roads. There are paintings of the scenic beauty of rainy moments and as time goes by, we seem to come up with more reasons to romanticize rain. Between man and this unique, emotional phenomena, participants have to design a man-made intervention or an interface on an existing settings to create a new experience or to accentuate the usual one; which has the potential to enhance pluviophilia, to take people in a transcendental journey to a deeper touching state. There is no particular site. You can choose any existing site suitable for your idea. Surprise us with your unique idea!
