Rain Why are You Here

Inspired by rainfall, this animation, made with the Processing software, explores our mindset on those rainy days. With the sound as a constant reminder that rainy days can persist and interact with you but you can still have a flow going. Even with that flow, it doesn’t change the fact that it is still raining.
The work represents how there is a two-way effect in our interactions, even when we are unaware of it at times.


Kofi Oduro: My artistic practice is an observation of the world around us, that I then put into artworks for others to relate to or disagree with. Through Videography, Poetry and Creative Coding, I try to highlight the realms of the human performance and the human mind in different scenarios. These situations can be described as social, internal, or even biological, which we face in our everyday lives. Adding music and visuals often helps to perceive one’s own feelings, and to highlight the different subtleties that make us human. With a dose of technology, there is an endless range of progress in the human creative endeavors.
