PRAYERS FOR RAIN (FOR WILHELM REICH), 2014:
Prayers for Rain (for Wilhelm Reich) was a piece made on a bit of a whim for Object Object !!. The piece takes a favorite design object, the Realistic WeatheRadio, and through the use of an embedded micro-controller, combines it with a playlist of songs dwelling on the weather. In a place like San Diego, where the weather is constant, I thought it important to mix it up a bit. Almost all of the songs are about rain, so a push of the button almost guarantees some form of much needed precipitation.
