The Rain Room Is Unveiled At The Curve Inside The Barbican Centre

Have you heard of the new installation at the MOMA, New York -the Rain Room?

Random International’s experimental project is part of the MoMA PS1 exhibition EXPO 1: New York.

It allows visitors  to “experience how it might feel to control the rain.”
Basically, you walk into a space with pooring ‘rain’ without getting wet. The pooring water just disappears whenever you step into this huge ‘shower’, it stops right over your head, wherever you move.
The secret are 3D camera sensors installed througout the dark room which detect objects and their movements.

“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.”

Sounds stunning, right? I would love to go and see..feel it for myself.

  1. Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some
    guidance from an established blog. Is it very hard to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about setting up my
    own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions? Appreciate it

      Hello there. Actually it’s not that hard. It’s more a ‘learning by doing’ process 🙂 You just have to throw yourself in there and start. You can’t do anything wrong, anyway. You’ll figure out things while blogging, don’t worry.
      I don’t know if that helps you.. but just go for it if it’s something you really want to do!
