rAndom International’s Sparkling Rain Room Lets You Play in the Rain Without Getting Wet

After walking blindly into the darkened gallery space, visitors appear to somehow control the falling water; you can feel encapsulated by the rain, yet without getting wet as though they are mysteriously protected from it. Set against the bright light emitted at the far end of the gallery, the ‘rain’ sparkles magically to form a space for contemplation. The interactive piece  also creates a surreal feeling that although the outside has been brought inside, you remain sheltered from it.
Open until March 3 2013, Rain Room: Random International will be on display at The Curve, Barbican Centre, London.
