Mesmerizing Kinetic Rain Sculpture At Changi Airport

views: 768

One of the coolest attractions inside the Changi Airport in Singapore is the Kinetic Rain, a lovely piece of moving art that celebrates the joy of flight.

It is made up of 1,216 copper coated aluminum rain droplets attached to motors which are controlled by a computer program. It measures 32 feet by 13 feet and is considered the world’s largest kinetic sculpture.

The mesmerizing rain dance is divided into two fields that create 16 different shapes including an airplane, a hot air balloon, a kite, a dragon, and at times abstract art patterns.

It was installed on July 2012 in the Departure-Check-in Hall at Terminal 1 as part of their “Tropical City” theme.
