“The Rain Room offers visitors the experience of controlling the rain. 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 creates a carefully choreographed downpour, simultaneously encouraging people to become performers on an unexpected stage and creating an intimate atmosphere of contemplation.” (from http://www.moma.org)
How fascinating! We didn’t get the chance to visit MoMA when we were in NYC last December and if this kind of exhibition was on, we would totally go! Imagine walking in the rain but not getting wet!
