Rain Room

Random International is a young experimental group that has recently installed a Rain Room in the Barbican Gallery in London. It consists of a 100 square meter field of falling torrential rain downpour. Visitors enter the room and the rain is repelled from your body as if you are giving off a magnetic field, so nobody gets a drop of water on them as they walk through the rain. Very high-tech, the Rain Room has a series of 3D cameras that detect the exact location of bodies, and then controls a system to keep you dry under 9 water outlets pouring 542 gallons at a time, constantly being filtered and recycled.
