There may be people far and few between who enjoy the rain so much that they flock to it– but for those who do, rAndom International studio gets it. This group of artists and creators has a London exhibition at The Curve in the Barbican appropriately titled, “Rain Room.”
Having just begun on the 4th of October and running through the 3rd of March 2013, the Rain Room allows visitors to walk through and experience rain droplets without actually getting wet. The interior of the space is controlled by high tech sensors that direct the water that falls from a 100 sq meter grate suspended high above the ground. So all of the sensory parts pertaining to the element of rain are there– you just don’t have to partake in being soaked whilst enjoying the downpour.
