Rain Room by Random International

Two self-proclaimed artists going under the pseudonym Random International are the latest addition to the Barbican. As journalist Olivier Wainwright demonstrates here, there is some remarkable technology behind the piece. Despite looking like a ill-maintained Kew Garden installation at first glance, you are actually able to walk through the exhibition without getting wet in the slightest. Using 3D-depth cameras, which track your body and then turn individual valves on and off. Reminds me of a certain scene in The Truman Show.

The free installation launches today and runs up until 3rd March 2012.
