The star installation of October has to be the Rain Room, an art installation by rAndom International now showing at the Barbican Centre. Usually we like to throw around high praises like a Frisbee but there is a reason why everyone spent a great part of October raving over this installation.

rAndom International, who are known for their distinctive approach to digital-based contemporary art, has given their audience the ability to control the rain. The Rain Room can be enjoy from a “safe” distance but those who are brave enough to venture into the installation are greeted by motion sensors that stop the rain from falling, leaving them bone dry in the midst of a downpour. Essentially, the Rain Room is just about control, it is also about trust.

Spanning over 100 square meters, this is their largest installation yet. It set to run at the Barbican Centre through March 3rd, 2013.
