THE RAIN ROOM

























Today I went to the much hyped about Rain Room at the Barbican. After queuing for just over two hours, I finally entered the exhibition space to dim lighting and the distant "pitter patter" of rain, and on following the curve of the venue around to the left, I was suddenly faced with the above scene.

In a nutshell, you walk into pouring down rain and don't get wet! Well, I felt a drop here and there...and if you move too quickly for the sensors the water hits you...but it's still a very impressive interactive exhibition and a surreal experience! If you have time I really recommend going, it's on until March next year - click here for all the info.  














































Has anyone else been? What did you think!? (I do have photos of what I wore by the way, but I'll post them separately). Hope everyone's having a great weekend xx

  1. I have been! Thought it was extraordinary, and so great they only let 8 people in at a time, it's quite intimate for such a popular event. Glad you liked it too!

  3. I really want to go to this! I can't believe you queued for 2 hours though. I might have to wait a while until the hype's died down (and hopefully the queues!) and then visit! You've managed to capture some amazing photos too

  6. I was waiting for your post about this! It makes me sad that I didn't get a chance to see it myself, but at least its understandable that the queue takes so long as only 8 people get in at a time.
