Barbican Rain Room has been made possible through the generous support of the Maxine and Stuart Frankel Foundation for Art. Video by Gramafilm, music by Max Richter
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 space 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. Selected press:
