2007/2008 - The rainmachine is a design for the project ‘Afkoppelen Hemelwater’. It is a dynamic object driven by rainwater.
A hugh bowl on the top of the machine collects the water and let it flow trough a whole into the highest spoon (reservoir). When the spoon is ful, it turns over 120 degrees. The water flows into the next spoon. The spoons are suited with rainsticks, so when they turn over, you can hear the sound of rain.
Finally the water will flow in the ground.It is a mechanical ballet of spoons with the sound of tropical rain.
The machine is more than 5 meter high and made out of stainless steel.
