Wetless Raindrops by Luzinterruptus

To commemorate a local public square and formerly a neighborhood swimming pool, the team of Luzinterruptus filled 800 condoms (all extra large and extra strength, in case you were wondering, and I know you were) with blue-dyed water and tiny lights to simulate soft, squeezable, and sinuous raindrops. The exhibit attracted lots of attention and ended predictably when local children decided the raindrops were best used as water balloons because for real, condoms or not, you’d totally do the same.

Pantone: Rain Edition by Giuliano Antonio Lo Re and Matteo Gallinelli

Guiliano and Matteo collaborated to produce these new Pantone colors with a touch of the elements. Kind of like the Planeteers, I imagine when created in the lab, all the scientists would yell: "EARTH! WIND!  SOME POWER THAT LETS ME COMMUNE WITH ANIMALS! IN THE NAME OF THE MOON, I SHALL PUNISH YOU! SHAZAM!"

Rainy Nights by Tiago Caetano

A bright neon stream of chaos rains down from Tiago’s stormcloud, in a pattern repeated throughout history, no matter who rules or what tragedies befall the land: the rain will continue to fall. The only difference between modern times and back then is now we can listen to invisible rain whenever we need it, instead of being at the whim of disorder.

Rain of Cats Textiles by Ivan Semesyuk

The crazy cat lady in me is always wondering why I don’t have enough cats emblazoned on everything I own… and why dont I? Probably because I’m a danger to myself and others if I tried to sew anything, but a wall of embroidered cats might be worth the risk.

Rain by Nazar Bilyk

Some people can’t really see their problems until it’s plopped right onto their face which is typically just a little too late. And sometimes, especially in the case of Nazar’s bronze figure, you’ve waited so long that your problems have become a bit too large-ish for your face to absorb.

London in Puddles by Gavin Hammond

Given the infamous amount of rain that continuously falls on London, Nature might be trying to tell us to look at things from a slightly different perspective. And what better way than from the ground up, seeing the historic monuments of the city through the lens of fallen rain. You can check tons more of Gavin’s dark lomo photography over at his flickr.

Umbrella Squirt Gun by Alex Woolley

Channel one of the primordial processes of nature into a weapon! This concept umbrella funnels rain through the top down into a water pistol in the handle as part of a campaign to encourage adults to play more. Act immature and goof around… twist my arm, why dont you, guys.

The Rain Room(s) by The Glue Society

An art exhibit in Aarhus, Denmark where the Glue Society has constructed a fully operational housing unit which the strange feature that it’s continuously raining inside. For the entire month of June, visitors can enter the house and observe the ensuing decomposition of the building from the constant rainfall.
