The Rain Room

Looks like I have another reason to visit the Rain Room over at MoMA (Museum of Modern Art). We were lucky enough to have a preview of the room the night of the MoMA PS1 Expo1 Opening Party. But alas, we lost our shots. So we’re giving you some amazing shots that folks have been taking while inside Random International’s exhibit.

The Rain Room at Moma

The Rain Room is interactive large-scale installation (the brainchild of London-based experimental collective Random International) – you step into this intense, expansive room with the roaring sound of rain coming down all around you, water flows continuously, yet the installation’s sensors detect your movements and shuts off the water around you – creating a magical effect, giving you the feel that you wield some control over the weather – not to mention, it makes for some pretty decent photo ops.

The exhibit runs until July 28th and is well worth the wait in line to experience.
