Sequences of images, rhythms of songs, excerpts from books, moments in nature and many other things we experience in our lives since we were born shape who we are today. Everything we perceive from this world is a collection of montage. History somehow can even be distorted based on certain persons who create it. Painter creates a painting by depicting parts of reality and mixed it with their imagination. Photography and ﬁlm are represented in a boundary of frames, documenting unseen reality outside. Even mathematical and scientiﬁc theories revealing the reality of the world are not completely new yet established from observation of nature over a long course of time.
So what is more real than nature? Nature is more powerful than we can imagine. Natural phenomenon like climate can alter how we feel. We do not know for sure whether these emotions are truly generated by our subconsciousness or inspired by the weather. One of the fundamental natural phenomena that effect our emotions since it contains powerful sensations like lightning and thunder than the other phenomenon, is rain.
Rainity aims to imitate visible drops of artiﬁcial rain by creating a scenographic experience with an aid of digital light installation. The installation captures certain aspects of rain, the reality of nature, simulating into a montage sequence of light and rhythms. By entering the space, viewers can understand instantly that raining effect is artiﬁcial simulated by LED light and programming. Rainity enables audiences to be submerged by their own subjective interpretation through common sense about reality that people shared.
