The Rain Room

Rain Room

Random International’s piece that first debuted in London (2012) is now on exhibit at the MoMA in New York:

“A field of falling water that pauses wherever a human body is detected, Rain Room offers visitors the experience of controlling the rain…The work invites visitors to explore the roles that science, technology, and human ingenuity can play in stabilizing our environment. Using digital technology, Rain Room creates a carefully choreographed downpour, simultaneously encouraging people to become performers on an unexpected stage and creating an intimate atmosphere of contemplation.”
