Rain Room

Rain Room is a hundred square metre field of falling water through which it is possible to walk, trusting that a path can be navigated, without being drenched in the process.

As you progress through The Curve, the sound of water and a suggestion of moisture fill the air, before you are confronted by this carefully choreographed downpour that responds to your movements and presence.

A remarkable installation by London-based contemporary art studio random international and is showing at the Barbican Center in London until March 2013. That’s a long time to be standing in the rain and not get wet.
