Airport Art Awesomeness

The Berlin-based firm ART+COM just finished this amazing new art installation in Terminal 1 of Changi Airport in Singapore. The sculpture, called Kinetic Rain, consists of two sets of 608 suspended raindrops made from lightweight aluminum covered in copper. They were then suspended from steel ropes attached to two escalators and appear as if they are floating in air. The drops are choreographed to follow a 15-minute, “computationally-designed choreography” where the two parts move together in unison, sometimes mirroring, sometimes complementing, and sometimes responding to each other.

I think it’s pretty fantastic, personally. Want to take any bets as to when Bush Intercontinental Airport will install something as wicked as this?
