Even wondered what rain would look like if it were frozen in time? Well thanks to artist Stacee Kalmanovsky, you can. To replicate the natural phenomenon, she created this installation of beads attached to a fishing line, hung underneath a glass ceiling. It’s as if she froze time, along with the rain drops in mid-air – creating the most amazing rain storm that you’ve ever seen – no umbrella necessary.
Despite the complexity of experience the materials are simple: fishing lines, plastic beads and a good deal of time to create the masterpiece. According to her website: “Stacee’s work is rooted in the uncanny, suggestive, and picturesque. Her urge to invent and exaggerate is tempered by a deep dedication to the medium at hand.”
Born in Gomel, Belarus in 1981, Stacee then moved to Chicago where she attended the University of Illinois. She currently lives and works out of Florence, Italy.
