Rain Room

May 15th, 2013

The Rain Room by rAndom International is an interactive installation which is also part of the EXPO 1: New York exhibition. The Rain Room is a 100 square metre field of falling water that visitors may walk through and experience how it might feel to control the rain. 10 people can be tracked by the system and everywhere they go, the rain will stop. It’s really a magical experience. You can visit the Rain Room at the MoMA in NYC till July 28th.

In the first 2 photos you can see a dance performance by the choreographer Wayne McGregor.

Tele-Present Water

July 8th, 2011

Tele-Present Water by David Bowen.

This installation draws information from the intensity and movement of the water in a remote location. Wave data is being collected in real-time from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data buoy Station 46246 (49°59’7″ N 145°5’20” W) on the Pacific Ocean. The wave intensity and frequency is scaled and transferred to the mechanical grid structure installed at The National Museum in Wroclaw, Poland. The result was a simulation of the physical effects caused by the movement of water from this distant location.

Ice Me

Erika Zorzi and Matteo Sangalli have one idea a day and put them up on their 01MATHERY tumblr. A few ago they posted their Ice Me idea. You put your jewelery in an ice cube tray, add some water and boooom … jewelery with ice cubes. Not sure if someone will still need this this summer.

Fountain 193

August 1st, 2010

Fountain 193 is a 12 minutes long video made by Cinthia Marcelle. It’s just a firefighter truck constantly driving in a perfect circle while its hose is shooting water to the centre of the geometric figure, provoking the image of a fountain in reverse.

Underwater Base Jump

June 9th, 2010

Free Fall is a video made by the freedivers Guillaume Néry and Julie Gautier. You can see Guillaume doing a base jump into Dean’s Blue Hole. They say it’s a fictional and artistic project, they wanted to show another approach to freediving videos. Even Julie, who filmed everything with a Canon 5D Mark II, hold her breath the whole time. The result is awesome.
