Rain Room

Steamy Wait Before a Walk in a Museum’s Rain. (The New York Times, 7/17/2013)

Excerpt: Since May 12, Mr. Guo and tens of thousands of others — art lovers, technology buffs and the merely curious — have trooped to the Museum of Modern Art for a chance to experience “Rain Room,” a temporary installation in which water rains down except where sensors detect people, giving visitors the illusion of walking between the drops. 

The work, by the little-known art collective rAndom International, received tepid reviews from art critics.
