Rain Room: Art installation that lets you experience rain indoors without getting wet

Imagine walking into a dark room that has its own internal downpour and thunderstorms, yet as you walk through the space – you don't ever get wet. Rain Room is an installation of falling water through which it's possible to walk, trusting that a path can be navigated, without ever being drenched in the process.

Exploring both art and technology, London-based experimental studio Random International has already successfully exhibited its unusual installation in New York and London; now it has launched at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA). Using approximately 528 gallons of recycled and used water, it's a self-contained system where visitors can dance in the rain, hear the sounds and feel the moisture of a thunderstorm, but stay completely dry and protected at the same time.

On display at LACMA until March 2016, you'll be glad to know that photography and experimentation are encouraged. Make sure you watch the video below to see the installation in action.
