“rAndom create artworks and installations that explore behaviour and interaction, often using light and movement. Founded in 2005 by Stuart Wood, Florian Ortkrass and Hannes Koch, the studio utilises raw fragments of artificial intelligence to encourage relationships between the converging worlds of animate and inanimate.

People walk through the room hesitant because it feels unnatural to willfully step into the rain. Off course the system controls you’re not getting wet and even when you know so our natural instincts will still make us feel hesitant.
What I do especially like about this room is that it plays with our primal instincts and apparently we can’t ignore them. How much you try to step in the room completely relaxed you’re still afraid to get wet.
