rAndom International are known for their expert eye and creative ability when it comes to recreating space and human perception in the digital and interactive art scene. And boy are we pleased to see more and more institutes like the Barbican endorsing these art experiences – it’s been a long time coming since ‘Decode: Digital Design Sensations’ first captivated audiences at the V&A in 2006.
‘Rain Room’ certainly offers the viewer a fully immersive experience, giving us the chance to experience what it’s like to control rain. You can watch or even walk through the rain, taking in the sound of rain and the choreographed stormy weather. Experimental and digital-based interventionist art at its best.
Music score: Max Richter | Film production: Gramafilm
