Have you ever wanted to control the rain? Random International's installation/environment at the Museum of Modern Art gives its audience a sense of what it would be like to have that power.
Part of the the MoMA PS1 Expo 1: New York exhibition, Rain Room utilizes digital technology to keep guests dry within a constant downpour.
Lit only by one spotlight, attendees are admitted into a controlled rainstorm, which clears a path as they navigate through the space.
It is a sensory experience, heightened by the sound of the deluge, which calls to mind issues of our control of the environment through scientific means.
Rain Room is open through July 28. Photos by Meri Feir and myself.
