LACMA Rain Room
Connects technology with art—the science and machinery that had to go into making this amazing art piece is a very complex and tasking. The rain room is a black room that has soothing and consistent rainfall occurring throughout the room. The when you walking into the rain itself though it stops falling right where you are standing due to the 3D sensors that are put in place on the ceiling. This show at LACMA gives you a sense of the unrealistic aspects of nature...You get to control the rain with your body movements. The show gives you a sense of calmness and peace while giving you control and power over something mother nature usually dictates.

The rain room is an escape from the real world for 15 minutes and it is hard to wrap your head around what you are actually experiencing the whole time you are in there you feel like it is never going to end and I know I didn't want it to.
