Rain Room installation by Randon International at MoMA

From May 12 through July 28, 2013 ‘Rain Room‘, the installation of Random International which invites visitors to experience the control of the rain, will be hosted at New York‘s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).

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 one to-date. 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.

The presentation of Rain Room at The Museum of Modern Art is part of EXPO 1, a large-scale festival exploring ecological challenges. This is the US premiere of the Random International’s installation, and follows its debut at Barbican Centre in London (October 2012-March 2013).
