Random International

Causing a Splash in London
Posted by Gestalten—01/2013

The Barbican’s The Curve is hosting the latest installation by the London-based design studio. It goes by the name of “Rain Room” and transforms the entire space with the help of monumental proportions of carefully choreographed downpour and the sound of water. The installation invites the visitor to experience what it’s like to control the rain.

It is possible that you may get wet especially if wearing dark clothing
Flat shoes are advisable

It is possible to get wet especially if wearing dark clothing. In order for visitors to enjoy the sensory experience of Rain Room, there is a limited capacity of 5 people at a time in the rain. However, the piece has been extemely popular, resulting in 3-4 hours queing times.

Join artists Random International on February 8th as they discuss this critically acclaimed art installation with international curator Hans Ulrich Obrist, Co-Director of Serpentine Gallery, and choreographer Wayne McGregor, Director of Wayne McGregor Random Dance. 

Random International are known for their distinctive approach to digital-based contemporary art. Their experimental artworks come alive through audience interaction and staged performance. More of their work is featured in A Touch of Code and Lux, both published by Gestalten.
