Andrea Vecera: November Rain

"November Rain" is a project by David Vecera to a tomb, which retrieves the water and uses it to generate the electricity needed to power an led.

Concept.
Water is life; retrieve it, store it and reuse it is a noble gesture that every human being should have. Many individuals will continue to do good "post mortem" and who never worried him from beyond the grave. "November Rain" is a synthesis of concepts about the value of water; the sanctity celebrated by the impluvium, a cross between a chalice and a basin for holy water; turn on a light, making "live" the soul of benefactor through the water itself, and the rite of watering a living being. A self-sufficient Tomb that ennobles the soul enshrines the role of the water and makes alive the hope.

Technology and materials.
The impluvium and base are obtained by means of rotational moulding and thermoforming in Cristalplant, a composite material made up of a high percentage of natural minerals (ATH detivate from bauxite) and a low percentage of Acrylic polymers and polyester of high purity; is an inert, non-toxic and resistant. The main stand is made of Carrara marble. The power of LEDs is through a mechanism which in contact with water emits low-voltage electricity, as the next-generation batteries AA. Rainwater remains inside a tank with a siphon that prevents evaporation and the proliferation of mosquitoes. The distribution takes place through a cock with button, you can dispense water inside the tank without any mechanism, as the water descends by gravity, also there is a slope that allows the water to go down to the last drop.

Suggestions and design ethics in attention to detail.
November Rain was born, for its formal appearance, the concept of "Altar" sought in iconography, connect the Holiness to a natural element like water that comes from the sky. The impluvium to collect more rainwater as possible and connservarla inside. Draws inspiration from a glass to enhance the sacredness of the content. The Nightlight is a drop, icon of rain and water, with water-powered LEDS. The raindrops that fall into a body of water, creating concentric circles, the resulting drawing can perform specific functions.
