BETTER RAINFALL (2019) 
Multi-channel video installation
8min
A multi-channel video installation centred around the multi-species residents of a fictional British suburb. As a passing storm moves over an unnamed town, everyday cycles open up to strangeness, and seemingly isolated bodies are brought into the temporary communion of melodic rapture.

The project was born out of a series of collaborations between Lizzie Watts and Yvonne Zhang, who share an interest in the creation of modern myths through a kind of “techno-magical realism”. By combining live action, animated elements, and lo-fi compositing, Watts and Zhang aimed to carve mythical moments into the modern landscape through playful digital renderings.
