Visitors inside the Rain Room at the Barbican

The Rain Room installation created by rAndom International at the Barbican Centre in London invites visitors to enter a downpour of rain only to discover that their bodies interrupt the flow of water anywhere they go—they never get wet even as the rain continues to fall all around them. 

This uncanny interaction between us and the elements is an interesting flip on our expectation to either control or give in to our environment.
