ROBB REPORT

CALIFORNIA---The Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and RH Restoration Hardware announce the West Coast debut of "Rain Room" (2012), an immersive work by the London-based artist collective Random International. Within this large-scale installation, water falls continuously to create a cacophonous interior downpour that pauses wherever a human body is detected. Upon entering this surreal environment, visitors can move through this space freely, protected from the water falling all around them. [link]
