One of the exhibits that I’m looking forward to on an upcoming trip to New York is the Rain Room at the Modern Museum of Art. The rain room is an installation in which the viewers can enter a rain-filled room and essentially control the rain by simply moving around in the space. The 3-D cameras in the room track the viewers’ movements and ‘turns off’ the rain based on these movements. It provides the viewer the opportunity to get caught in the rain without ever having to get wet. It also allows for some pretty cool photographs! Originally installed in London by rAndom International, the rain room will be presented at the MoMA through July 28th.
