There’s a Downpour in MoMA’s ‘Rain Room’, But You Won’t Get Wet

You never know what you’ll find or walk into when you’re at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. For example, Random International’s “Rain Room” is currently on display there until July 28th.

Being true to its name, you’ll be greeted by a torrent of falling water once you step into it. The coolest thing, though, is that you won’t ever get wet despite the fact that it’s (artificially) raining cats and dogs.

Rain Room is a field of falling water that pauses wherever a human body is detected—offering visitors the experience of controlling the rain. 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.

Viewers are kept dry thanks to the sensors on the roof that temporary halts the downpour of water on the spot where they’re standing. The experience is best described as surreal, since it’s the only time you’ll be able to walk through rain without getting wet and without an umbrella.
