Rain Poems (2019)

rain, tattoo paper, ink

In "Rain Poems", referential text in regards to rain was printed on water transfer printing paper (tattoo paper) and left outside in the rain to affect. The words which remained visible, selected by the raindrops in their pressure and rhythms, are perceived to be the rain's own poetry.

The sound of raindrops hitting the surface was recorded during the process of making these poems. The readers are expected to listen to the recordings while they read the rain poems. Just as all widely spoken human languages have both written form and spoken form, the recording is the phonemic version of rain’s writings.
