Seattle-based artist Peregrine Church has been working on a interactive project that had him creating fascinating water-activated artworks all over the sidewalks in his neighborhood.

Similar to the spray-painted artworks that we featured previously, Church’s ‘Rainworks’ project features uplifting quotes and water-themed artworks that will only appear on rainy days or when the sidewalks are wet.

Each stencil installation is created with a biodegradable superhydrophobic coating, and can last from four months to a year.

Church said that he started the fun project “to give people a reason to look forward to rainy days” in Seattle.
