rain room.

last week i was lucky enough to get to experience random international's rain room installation that's up at MOMA right now through july 28th. due to my most impressive friend being part of a residency at PS1 i was able to tag along with his group for their VIP access and forgo the usual ~5 hour wait time. woo hoo! it was really really cool to be able to move through a rainstorm and not get wet (although a little ironic because we were already wet from the actual rain that was happening outside!)

 it was fun just to move your body around and see how fast or slow you could move before the sensors would turn on or off. aside from all of the picture taking most people were just randomly moving their bodies through the space, flinging their legs and flailing their arms. 

when the rain room was installed at the barbican in london, wayne mcgregor choreographed a dance performance based off of just such an instinct.
