Journey of a Raindrop

When a raindrop and his family venture into the deep and a thunderstorm drives them apart, a harsh journey through a world of sparse and elemental landscapes unfolds.

With Journey of a Raindrop, Jólan van der Wiel takes the viewer through a landscape of natural forces and material experimentations.

Following the circular trajectory of a single drop of rain, many of the most elementary forces that still shape our reality are brought into play. For Jólan, the use of film offered a completely new way of reflecting on his practice as a designer, giving him an almost endless range of possibilities in the experimentation with new materials – hereby further expanding his design practice that has always focussed on finding new applications for unorthodox materials and techniques.
