My name is Peregrine Church.
I make things that make the world a more interesting place.
Like a rainwork.
Rainworks are pieces of street art that only appear when they're wet
and they're messages or images designed to make people's rainy day a little bit better.
Seattle is associated with rain it's fair to say
and rainworks all it needs to be is wet so
it's sort of the ideal Seattle art.
So the stuff that makes rainworks is biodegradable, environmentally-friendly
and completely non-toxic.
The essential ingredient when making rainworks
is a super hydrophobic coating.
Ok, let's see how it works on the "NeverWetted" pants and shirt.
So you want me to start on the shirt, alright?
That is a chemical that when you put it on a surface will prevent that surface from getting wet.
What! Woah! What!
I was just browsing the internet one day and stumbled across
a viral video, and the video showed
these really vivid images of red wine pouring off a white shirt
and chocolate syrup pouring off white shoes
and people getting buckets of water thrown on them
and they're like totally fine and I'm like "woah, that's super cool!"
What can I do with this?
It's a spray-on substance so it made sense.
What if you sprayed it through a stencil?
So if you put it on concrete well ideally it'd be invisible
instead of the concrete getting dark the water would just roll right off it
And it will stay light-colored.
The contrast can be used to create an image
The very first one I did said "Stay Dry Out There"
and had a bunch a rain drops falling on it.
It was on a bus stop.
And now there's about 25 to 30 rainworks out there
There's a lily pad and pond
with frogs hopping between them in Ballard.
There's "I Heart Rain" in UW.
At 4th and Bell it says "Worry is a Misuse of the Imagination".
There's "Today's Weather: Rain" in Fremont.
There's "Proud To Be Rainy" in Capitol Hill
There's hopscotch at the junction in West Seattle
And we want to make way more.
I mean it's gonna rain no matter what so why not do something cool with it!
