Rain Room (MOMA, installation)The Museum of Modern Art announces “a Rain Room is a  field of falling water that pauses wherever a human body is detected—offering visitors the experience of controlling the rain.” MOMA explains and proves “the work invites visitors to explore the roles that science, technology, and human ingenuity can play in stabilizing our environment”.

Using digital technology, Rain Room is a carefully choreographed downpour—a monumental work that encourages people to become performers on an unexpected stage, while creating an intimate atmosphere of contemplation. Known for their distinctive approach to digital-based contemporary practice, Random International’s experimental projects come alive through audience interaction and Rain Room is their largest and most ambitious to-date. The presentation of Rain Room at The Museum of Modern Art is part of EXPO 1: New York, a large-scale festival exploring ecological challengesRain Room is on view at The Museum of Modern Art, courtesy of RH, Restoration Hardware.
