Walking in the Rain


Walking in the Rain

As an avid wearer of waterproofs – following numerous incidents in torrential rain and buses driving through puddles – I was amazed when I read about a new art installation at The Barbican that puts YOU in control when it’s raining cats and dogs.

Following the summer we just had, this is a dream come true. No Berghaus coat done up to my eye balls and waterproof trousers that make me look like a fisherman.

Created by rAndom International, ‘The Rain Room‘ has been an instant hit.

You can walk through rain without getting wet. You can hear it, you can see it but still you stay dry. All done in a 100m² space filled with geometrically perfect rainfall. Apparently that’s 2,500 litres of water falling from the ceiling at 1,000 litres per minute. Impressive.

Unfortunately it won’t be coming to the rain clouds in Sheffield anytime soon.
