Spotlight: Random International's Rain Room
How in touch are you with the environment around you? Do you believe technology can bring you closer to yourself? Can art bridge the gap between yourself and your environment?
The Rain Room by Random International presents an amplified representation of our environment. The human presence prevents the rain from falling, creating a unique atmosphere and exploring how human relationships to each other and to nature are increasingly mediated through technology.
For this webinar, we are looking back at nearly a decade of influence. The Rain Room is a 2012 experiential artwork by Hannes Koch and Florian Ortkrass of Random International. The piece was previously shown at a number of international art venues, including the MoMA in NYC and the Barbican in London.
We will discuss with the artists of Random International about the logistics of creating, exhibiting, touring and preserving this interactive and immersive work.
