Who wants to go out in the rain without an umbrella ? In ordinary circumstances the answer is simple : nobody, but in this special room, anyone can walk through the rain without even getting a little bit wet!
At the Barbican, the largest multi-arts center from Europe, Random presents experimental art in an extraordinary form : liquid. Simulating a real rain they realized an installation which uses 2,500 liters of water, falling at 1,000 liters per minute.
The smart detectors and the cameras create a 3D-map with the location of bodies on the plinth, in this way the square that controls outlets from the grid panels, above where the persons are, prevent the water from pouring. As they step forward the rain closes around them enveloping the visitors in a perfect cylindrical void.
A fantastic experience almost like a revery, an experimental art that brings together people and new intelligent technologies and also which reminds that nature is important and it should never be forgotten.
