Stopping the rain

A woman extends her arm out on Oct. 3 while walking through the Rain Room, an interactive art installation at The Curve inside London's Barbican Centre. Despite the torrential downpour in this 100-square-meter room, visitors remain dry thanks to 3D sensory cameras that detect the position of each individual and stops the rain overhead.

Staying dry

Visitors walk through the Rain Room on Oct. 3, which was created by Random International, an artist trio consisting of Florian Ortkrass, Stuart Wood and Hannes Koch, all of whom met at London's Royal College of Art. The installation will be open to the public at The Curve until March 3, 2013.
