Walking through rain without getting wet – one surreal experience.
Rain Room is a work by Random International, a collaborative studio for experimental practice within contemporary art. It was founded in 2005 by the London-based artists Florian Ortkrass and Hannes Koch.
In the Rain Room water falls perpetually, creating an impressive downpour which pauses at the detection of a human body. This surreal experience allows you to walk through rain without getting wet. It is almost like you can control it. You are absolutely protected from water falling all over you. Sounds impossible, right!
This amazing art exhibit will be on display at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) until March 6, 2016.
While 18 to 22 people may enter the gallery, only 5 to 7 are allowed to enter the Rain Room at once. A gallery visit is approximately 10-15 minutes. This large-scale installation uses around 528 gallons (2000 L) of water, supplied through LACMA’S water main. The same quantity of water is recycled, filtered and used throughout the entire run of the exhibition.
