Interactive "Rain Room" Exhibit Allows Visitors To Control Their Environment

NEW YORK, NY - MAY 15: Visitors gather in the new 'Rain Room' installation at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in Manhattan on May 15, 2013 in New York City. The 5,000 square-foot installation creates a field of falling water that stops in the area where people walk through, allowing them to remain dry. The piece, created by Random International, releases a 260-gallon per minute shower around visitors. (Photo by Mario Tama/Getty Images)

MoMA's 'Rain Room'

The Museum of Modern Art’s surreal, interactive Rain Room exhibit gives humans the supernatural power to experience rain

without

actually getting wet. Using digital technology, Rain Room creates a choreographed downpour, 'simultaneously encouraging people to become

performers on an unexpected stage and creating an intimate atmosphere of contemplation.' So, how do they actually do it? I guess you have to feel it (or not) to believe it!
