Teaser for Tears in Rain

A visual poem, trying to capture the poetics of a cinematic rain shower into the structure of its images. Through datamanipulation, Tears in Rain attempts to inject several tactile rain textures into the images of Blade Runner, the 1982 science fiction film noir classic in which it rains continuously.
