The Rain Room at MOMA, New York

Nona Schulte-Roemer sent this link to the Rain Room exhibit at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. If you are there before 28th July, 2013, we’d heartily recommend a visit: The efficacy of the effect depends upon the intense carbon arc lamps known as klieg lights. Motion sensors pause the rain where a body is detected. The New York blog Gothamist writes that the ‘overall effect is mesmerizing–semi-blinding white klieg light at the back of the room disorients your field of vision while highlighting the millions of individual raindrops showering down around you on all sides’.
