Thomas Eyck Made By Rain
By Aliki Van Der Kruijs
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.
