The Sound of Rain

2011, Steel, aluminum, 55"w x 18"h x 27"d

This outdoor bench is meant to celebrate the sound of rain, sleet or hailstone by amplifying it acoustically. When the rain drops hit the seating surface, they create the “music” of nature. The bars are not placed in order as a usual xylophone; instead, they are juxtaposed to make different pitches spontaneously.
