untitled Rain Room at MoMA: Random International | 13 May Click to enlarge It’s been a weekend of wall-to-wall art and design here in NYC with art fairs small and large, from Pulse, to Nada, to Collective, to Frieze and, of course, the opening of Rain Room at MoMA, the interactive and immersive installation by rAndom International that first debuted at the Barbican Centre in London last October. I will be featuring some of the highlights, for me, from these events in the next few days but here, for starters, is the amazing Rain Room. Rain Room is a large-scale environment (in the case of MoMA, it’s a separate entity outside the museum on 54th Street) with a field of pouring rain whose flow is suspended detecting the presence of bodies, allowing visitors to wander around the room amidst the beautifully highlighted drops, without getting wet. Injection moulded tiles, solenoid valves, pressure regulators, 3D tracking cameras, custom software and steel beams are involved in the production of the installation.
In Order to Control — NOTA BENE Visual | Digital Experiences Man, in every era, is both the victim and the killer. How ironic…The dynamics are changing… The dynamics have changed…The most evil of this era have been chosen: Violence, virtuality, singularity. But for what purpose? The purpose is control, the purpose is control, the purpose is control. The criminal tool is violence, the criminal tool is virtuality, the criminal tool is singularity.Control triggers everything, control triggers anything. But who pulls the trigger? A Reflective Palace of Rainbows by Kimsooja Created in 2006 by multidisciplinary artist Kimsooja, To Breathe – A Mirror Woman was an elaborate installation at the Palacio de Cristal, Parque del Retiro, in Madrid. Originally built in the late 1880s to house a collection of flora and fauna from the Philippines, Kimsooja transformed the Palacio de Cristal into a multisensory sound and light experience. A special translucent diffraction film was used to cover the windows to create an array of naturally occurring rainbows which were in turn reflected by a mirrored surface that covered the entire floor. Kimsooja most recently wrapped the Korean Pavilion with a similar film treatment at the 2013 Venice Art Biennale.

Complete immersion in a unique environment has long been a driving interest of the studio. From left: Random International. Our 2008 work Audience explored how people could engage with something clearly inanimate as though it were human and the ensuing sense of intrigue and joy. Rain Room‘s gestation period was long—four years from start to finish. These small beginnings have large outcomes. Rain Room is on view at MoMA through July 28.
