It’s quite evident that our weather is unpredictable, but what if you could control the rain? It’s possible in The Rain Room. In a nearly 1,000-square-foot lot directly adjacent to MOMA, you can walk through a field of falling water and never get wet thanks to sensors that pause the water in a five-foot radius around you. The British design studio Random International first debuted its immersive installation at the Barbican Centre in London last year, and now will present its largest and most ambitious work to date as a component of the exhibition EXPO 1: New York at MOMA PS1. Now, if only they could create a way to do this outside.
Mondays-Sundays, 10 a.m. Starts: May 12. Continues through July 28, 2013
