Random International: Rain Room
4 October 2012 – 3 March 2013
In this daring new commission, contemporary art studio Random International invites you to become a performer on an extraordinary stage of perpetual rainfall, allowing you to progress through an expanse of falling droplets – incredibly – without being ‘caught in the rain’.
Through using sophisticated technology, Rain Room remains profoundly elemental and simple. The installation hints at the beauty and growing scarcity of water on the planet and encourages us to consider technology’s role in harnessing our resources.
Random International are known for their distinctive approach to digital-based contemporary art. Their experimental artworks come alive through audience interaction and staged performance.
Rain Room has been made possible through the generous support of the Maxine and Stuart Frankel Foundation for Art.
