Have you ever wished you could control the weather? Well now you can ! The Rain Room is an interactive installation by  Random International (what a name!) currently in the Curve in Barbican where the visitors stroll amidst the rain without getting wet! Sensors detect where they are standing, and the rain stops around their bodies, giving them an experience of how it might feel to control the rain.The space is also shared  by dancers from Wayne McGregor that perform a continuous 24h choreography which adds a whole new dimension to the installation and turns every visit to a personal experience.
