Miyajima listens to the weather forecast for the day with showers expected, and he goes out and waits for the shower to come. When it comes, he lies down on the road. After a while, he gets up. The trace of his body will remain there. It is a collaborative art work with his body (artificiality) and rain (nature). Rain (nature) will obliterate this figure.
This type of performance has been tried in several places until 1983.
