We all know rain is essential to our being and the world around us. Still, it gets a bad rap sometimes. TV and films use a backdrop of rain to make sad, somber moments, and the term “beautiful day” really only seems to apply to sunshine.
So in the rainy city of Seattle, one innovative artist decided to try to change that narrative.
Using a non-toxic, biodegradable water repellant, he’s made stencils and put them up all over the city. On a normal “beautiful” day, the messages are invisible. But on a cloudy, wet day, the messages emerge, giving everyone around them a reason to while even when caught in the rain.
