Landscapes change when the weather changes, the light becomes different and the whole atmosphere changes. Rain makes everything beautiful, I can smell the surroundings. All materials seem to alter.

Solid Poetry is a concrete tile that reacts on water. It's a symbiosis between concrete and water. As the water flows onto the concrete tile, images or patterns will appear. We try to explore the possibilities for hidden design appearing as the environment changes. We applied techniques to an enduring and solid material, so that natural processes reveal patterns. Rain uncovers decoration on a city square. The possible applications of solid poetry are various: either at home in the bathroom, in the garden or public spaces like bus stops or pavements. All forms of solid poetry have in common that they change the whole setting; they are surprising and have a life of their own. With time the tiles change, usage leaves it traces and the patterns will be permanently visible.
