The Rainmaker
An installation depicting the typical British Summer.

Before stepping into the real London, I have used the help of the virtual world - be it TFL or the BBC weather forecast widget. The typical ‘British Summer’ has inspired me into creating my visual around rainfall. I call myself ‘The Rain-Maker’, literally. As I am attempting to ‘make’ rain, using a screen-printed fabric (on which it is raining cats, dogs, fish, alligators amongst other animals), giant paper cutouts, and an intricately hand crafted umbrella, creating an urban-scape above it.

It is raining cats, dogs alligators and more ... amongst other animals that have rained across England 
over the past 60 years; according to an article; you can find all of that created for a pattern printed on this fabric. 
It also shows a water cycle - an imaginary one, in this case.
Printing the fabric in the studio.
The printed fabric. It had three different colours, and the pattern had to be repeated several times over the fabric, to make it appear seamless.
