Art + Com have recently installed a beautifully choreographed installation in Terminal 1 of Changi Airport in Singapore. It consists of raindrops made from lightweight aluminum covered in copper which are raised and lowered in a 15-minute computationally designed choreography.
The installation consists of exactly 1,216 high shine copper plated aluminium drops, hanging from the ceiling on almost invisible wire ropes, from which every one of them can be moved with a motor. Due to the software written especially for the project by MKT, the motors are programmed in such a way, that the drops dance for 15 minutes, including 16 different programme sections.
In total, Kinetic Rain spans an area of more than 75 m² and is installed in a space over 8 metres high. The idea and the concept was developed by the Berlin agency Art+Com.
