Come and relive your first kiss in the rain, or running home from school through puddles in a multi-level sensory exhibition.
As you enter The Spire the first thing you hear is the evocative sound of rain, hitting and splashing on the floor. Immediately your eyes will be drawn up to a rainy zenith sky with raindrops streaking downwards and out. See projected droplets fall as rapid chasing lights synced with the sound of the rain. On the tiled floor see projected ripples and splashes will patina the tiled floor.
Designed to trigger memories and let people connect personally with technology, the project has been designed to be accessible to everyone. Although fundamentally digital, the work has no barriers to be enjoyed by communities who might not relate to other digital artworks. The installation is built from curiosity and discovery as a place where people can feel personal connections to the environment - as their own life experiences become the only necessity to enjoying the exhibition.
Special thought has been given to disabled communities - as part of the project there is an ongoing skill share and collaboration between the artist and local disabled artists with a focus on digital accessibility and barriers.
