SUN & RAIN (2020) is an infinite audiovisual typographic animation generated in realtime.

The sun and the rain are not exactly opposites. However, I perceive them in that way. The installation explores these two natural phenomena in a direct relationship with the typography, a cultural element, thus metaphorically crossing two natural elements constantly present in our lives with a cultural element also present with the same intensity. The nature / culture opposition suffers here a kind of fusion raising questions regarding the universe of language, its typographic representation, its role in our lives, its naturalisation, among others.
