Seattle-based artist Peregrine Church is transforming his city’s rainy reputation into its strongest attraction.
In his project, appropriately titled “Rainworks,” Church uses a non-toxic, biodegradable, super hydrophobic coating to stencil messages and artwork on the concrete sidewalks of the city.
When rain inevitably hits, the designs stay completely dry, leaving tongue-in-cheek directives like “Stay dry out there!” Intended to jolt people out of their everyday routines, the rain-activated artworks offer funny, playful distractions for soggy Seattle residents.
From a tentacled family’s dry seat prints left at a bus stop, to a fun game that challenges you to avoid the wet “lava” of the ground, these weather-activated artworks are sure to make you smile, even on the rainiest of days.
