A realistic tree forged from stainless steel, Rain Tree is a fountain sculpture that stands at the centre of a large water feature. Although a static structure, the fountain’s streams of water move with the wind, creating shifting spaces among its willowy forms that simulate the swaying of tree branches. The aptly-named sculpture has the appearance of producing literal ‘rain’, but also references a common species of tree seen around Singapore.
