• Rain Room by Random International

  • If there's one thing England is known for it's the terrible weather, so it's rather fitting that The Barbican have just unveiled the Rain Room installation in The Curve space. The intriguing commission was produced by contemporary art studio Random International and allows visitors to walk through it while staying entirely dry. As you enter, 3D depth cameras pick up on your presence and turn off the water jets above your head as you move through the 100 sqm space.

    This is certainly one of the most interesting installations to have arrived at The Barbican and, as well as being free, it's on for a whole five months so you have no excuse not to make it down if you're in the area.

    • I`d rather experience the opposite, where it only rains where you stand.
