Max Richter to launch Rain Room at MoMA
Max Richter is to launch Random International's artwork 'Rain Room' at the MoMA in New York. The art piece, which consists of a large room filled with simulated rainfall, paused by human movement, creates the illusion of passing through rain, untouched by it, and allows visitors to remain dry whilst surrounded by water.
The piece is part of an exhibition entitled EXPO 1: New York, and enjoyed huge success at London's Barbican Centre before transferring. Max Richter composed a special piece for the artwork, entitled 'Rainlight' (a free download of which is available below). For more information on 'Rain Room', visit MoMA's website.
