Rinse at the Barbican

Rain Reactive Posters

Inspired by London’s unique and ever changing cultural scenes, a set of posters for an event programme between Rinse FM and the Barbican were created. The brightly colored gradient posters are made from a special paper that has a color changing effect, which is activated with water. As it rains and it comes in contact with water, images of the Barbican towers appear. As the posters dry, the images disappear. For this concept, emphasis was placed on the constant evolution of the city’s creative and cultural scenes and also on the importance of tower blocks in both Rinse’s history as a pirate radio station and the Barbican’s brutalist architecture.
