I've been reading more about the Rain Room installation at The Barbican in London (see yesterday's post). If you are as intrigued as I am, Google You Tube Rain Room Barbican for many more videos - of varying quality..
I am fascinated at the response to it in wet rainy UK. People are enchanted by it and love interacting with it, describing the expereince as poetic and visceral. Wayne McGregor's dance company are performing in it on 24 February while visitors walk through, and I can see that this might well be rather special and certainly unique - but they are expecting to queue for up to five hours for the experience!
Wonderful, don't you think? It will be pouring down there until 3rd March.
But it's a long way to London....if I could find somewhere private enough I can imagine myself doing a sort of Gene Kelly rain experience of my own.. Have you got 4 minutes 36 seconds to spare? Click here. Impossible not to smile at this!
I wonder....it's quiet along the shore path on a really wet day, there are some really good puddles there, and I could have a nice hot shower when I got home.
