Synopsis: After the driest April on record in Catalonia, rain finally arrived in May. May 25th saw the highest precipitation in Barcelona, while not ending the drought, did slow it down. On that day, we extracted climate data from the Meteorological Service of Catalonia, Meteocat, and transformed it into Generative RAIN: an audiovisual experiment that generates stories automatically using artificial intelligence (AI) models. Every hour, based on the forecast, we modified input instructions, resulting in the creation of texts, images, and sounds. We then selected and organized these elements into an audiovisual experience.
