DEMOCRATIC RAIN
...is an open-source-installation in the public street-context and in the Internet. It invites all local and virtual passengers to answer a question using their smartphones or their desktop computers and DROP out.
 
SKY..is the internet and the virtual audience and each answer which reaches and expresses itself through the CLOUD via www.democraticrain.net
 
CLOUD..is the internet connected laser printer which is installed on/in a public spot/context.
 
DROP ..is every single sheet of A4-paper, which leaves, informed by the voice of the individual, the CLOUD. The answers are limited to 160 characters and automatically adjust their font size to the A4 format. Each response is printed and online untranslated. A name field makes it obligatory to sign the post (at least with an alias). All DROPs become chronological listed and can be commented.
 
RAIN ..is the sum of the free-falling DROPS.
 
EVAPORATOR.. is the local, real part of the audience. She/he reaches the CLOUD via her/his smartphone and carries on the experience and massages orally.
 
POOL ..is the sum of all street-landing DROPS.
