Design Inspiration: Kinetic Rain

In July of 2012, the sculpture “Kinetic Rain” was unveiled at Terminal 1 of the Singapore Changi Airport. Designed by ART+COM, the piece consists of 608 droplets, which are installed above two central escalators. The droplets are made up of lightweight aluminum and are covered in copper. Attached to each droplet is a very thin steel rope that is connected to a computer-controlled motor, allowing it to move up and down to take part in a 15-minute choreography sequence. The visual experience of the choreography varies depending on the perspective of the visitor’s point of view.
