PROJECT

Rain Room is an installation hundred square meter field of falling water through which it is possible to walk, trusting that a path can be navigated, without being drenched in the process. As you progress, the sound of water and a suggestion of moisture fill the air. Then, you are confronted by, this carefully choreographed downpour of water that responds to your movements and presence.

MATERIALS

Water
Steel beams
Grated steel floor

TECHNOLOGY

 Water management system
Injection molded tiles
Solenoid valves
Pressure regulators
3D sensor-tracking cameras
Customized software


EFFECT

The person that walks through the rain will experience the illusion of walking outside in a humid rainy environment but actually won’t get wet. Also for those who are standing outside of it will also see those who are inside as if they are really standing in the rain. It’s about the feeling of standing outside in connection with nature.
