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 the rain. 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.
