Art & Design: Kinetic Rain Sculpture by Art+Com

Berlin-based design agency Art+Com recently completed an installation in the departure lounge of Terminal 1 at Changi Airport in Singapore, entitled Kinetic Rain.

A bit of visual respite from London’s grey skies this afternoon… Berlin-based design agency Art+Com recently completed an installation in the departure lounge of Terminal 1 at Changi Airport in Singapore, entitled Kinetic Rain.

The impressive display has been cited as one of the largest kinetic sculptures in the world.  Composed of two parts, it features 1,216 aluminum-coated copper raindrops that move in a choreographed 15-minute sequence, “sometimes mirroring, sometimes complementing, and sometimes responding to each other,” explain Art+Com. Each droplet suspends from the ceiling with thin stainless-steel wire, while small motors control the careful movements of the sculpture as a whole.

In our Futurist report, Escapism, we explore future airports that are likely to develop as new centers of global exchange for the cities they inhabit. As airports get busier, projects like this will provide moments of peace for busy commuters. – Samantha Fox
