Visitors view a kinetic art installation dubbed ‘Kinetic Rain’ located in Terminal 1 at Changi International Airport in Singapore, which is purported to be the world’s largest kinetic artwork. The installation was designed and constructed by a German group which features 1,216 bronze droplets which are mounted from the ceiling and move in tandem with each other to form patterns and shapes.
Berlin firm ART+COM just completed this stunning new kinetic sculpture in Terminal 1 of Changi Airport in Singapore. Kinetic Rain consists of two sets of 608 suspended raindrops made from lightweight aluminum covered in copper which are raised and lowered in a 15-minute computationally designed choreography controlled from motors embedded in the ceiling. ART+COM created a similar though somewhat smaller piece for the BMW Museum in 2008. Photo credit: AP, Then Chih Wey / Xinhua
