Rain Room
Rain Room, part of MoMA PS1’s exhibition, EXPO 1: New York, gives visitors the opportunity to experience the incredible:the power to control the rain.
3-D depth cameras, fixed on the sides of Rain Room, allow visitors to walk under the piece’s constant downpour without actually getting wet. When a person enters the 100 square metre room, the cameras detect the shape of the body and turn certain valves in the ceiling on and off. The result is a rain-free space that moves with the person, giving visitors a sense of control over the shower.
Following EXPO 1: New York's environmental theme, Rain Room looks into how science and innovation can help maintain the environment. It is also the latest and largest addition to a series of works by rAndom International, the studio which created the room. The series examines how viewers behave and interact with the works, a motive synonymous with Rain Room’s interactivity.
Rain Room first debuted last year in London and is currently on display at The Museum of Modern Art until July 28.
