Weather the storm and engage your senses inside this monumental artwork.
Following a sell-out seven-month season in Melbourne in 2019, RANDOM INTERNATIONAL’s unmissable Rain Room will reopen on Saturday 5 December.
A 100 square metre field of continuous rainfall, Rain Room invites you to become fully immersed in the rain while simultaneously being protected from it. The millions of water droplets respond to your presence by ceasing to fall wherever you move as you navigate the space. Through Rain Room, Random International seeks to explore how human relationships to each other and to nature are increasingly mediated through technology.
“You could say that the Rain Room is a fitting piece in times like these ... Solitude is an essential component to health and well-being, and to us, Rain Room has the capacity to be an exercise in mindful meditation. This requires a somewhat socially distanced approach, and being cocooned by a soothing rainstorm is a remarkably cleansing and contemplative experience.”
Reopening 18 Feb 2021
