It may not rain often in Los Angeles, but guests of Rain Room—which runs from November 1 through March 6 at LACMA—can enjoy the standing in the midst of a relaxing downpour without the fear of getting drenched. The 2012 piece from London-based Random International takes place in a dark, 2500 square foot space room full of falling water, but sensors adjust the ‘rain’ when they sense someone is present, keeping guests dry as they move throughout. So, it’s like having your own personal, intangible umbrella. And while it feels magical, it’s actually a beautiful blend of art and technology.
