Finding connection in Conversations with Rain

Cup your hands over your ears, pause. listen.

Notice overlapping sounds of sea, cave, sense, time, r a i n

Now pick up two pencils, one in each hand, and use them to make the Sound of Rain with repeated marks falling onto the page. What if listening were an artwork in itself?

Conversations with Rain is an ongoing, multi-platform, and multi-disciplinary partnership between the Art Gallery of Western Australia and Edith Cowan University, School of Education employing artist-led practices and poetic pedagogies to heighten sensation and deepen empathic relations with weather.
