Inside the Rain Room

For more photos from the Rain Room’s last days on exhibition, check out its location page from MoMA’s EXPO 1 in New York City and MoMA’s very own Rain Room Instagram gallery.

In October of 2012, UK art studio Random International unveiled something amazing at London’s Barbican Centre: a 100-square-meter room filled with artificial rain known as the Rain Room.

A series of 3D cameras tracks the presence of people in the space and stops the rain from falling directly around them, allowing visitors to wander and play throughout the downpour while staying completely dry.

The installation traveled to New York City for MoMA’s EXPO 1 in May of this year and will end July 28th. Throughout its tour, Rain Room has quickly become a favorite for local and travelling Instagrammers, who have captured photos and videos of the magical experience.
