Thought behind the thought:
Unseasonal rain always brings a sombre mood with it. All the birds and animals are also perturbed by its sudden onset. It has something probably to do with uncertainty and unpredictability of the event that makes us uneasy. The climatic changes and environmental issues have literally put our seasons in disarray. Just like an unexpected life event makes us anxious and wary unseasonal rain seems to enter our souls and awaken old wounds and pain.
About Art and Design
Rain , where you least expect it, is the theme of this installation "Rain Room", designed by Random International. The installation gives the visitor a feel of walking in the rain without getting wet!
As you progress through The Curve, the sound of water and a suggestion of moisture fill the air, before you are confronted by this carefully choreographed downpour that responds to your movements and presence.
Random International create artworks and installations that explore behaviour, reaction and intuition in relation to natural phenomena and the human form. The studio responds to recent developments in cognitive science and new media by creating works that encourage an active relationship between people and their surrounding environments, making the viewers’ participation fundamental. Founded in 2005 by Stuart Wood, Florian Ortkrass and Hannes Koch, the studio is based in London and today includes a growing team of diverse and complementary talent.
