The Belgian brand Spa bottles natural mineral water and to celebrate this process with rain turning into mineral water, they made an installation that turns rain into a beautiful show of sound and light.
As an ode to the never-ending source of Spa water, I was asked to help Circus Family and J. Walter Thompson Amsterdam to create an installation that turns drops of rain into beautiful sounds, lights and projections, against the spectacular backdrop of the nature reserve Spa.<br\></br\>
Rain detection sensors were placed throughout the forest. When raindrops touched the surface of the sensors, projections, light effects and sound were triggered.
To capture the essence of rain Arduino boards were used in combination with Vuo scripts that directly interpreted the rain which orchestrated Resolume & Ableton Live.
