Rainbeam is a natural light installation for a blank wall in a dark alley in Venice: the Calle dei Albanesi.

A grid of tiny mirrors reflects light from the sun onto the wall below. As people move through the Calle they cause the reflected light to bounce as they pass - like raindrops on the wall. The lights change colour and shape as the sun changes position through the day.

The core idea for the project was to have a mechanical/analogical approach: a way of embedding a natural element within the interactive piece.
