Rain Room (Sharjah, UAE)

Sharjah Art Foundation presents Rain Room for the first time in the Middle East. The installation is permanently sited in Al Majarrah, Sharjah.

Random International’s immersive installation Rain Room (2012) invites you to walk through a downpour of continuous rain without getting wet. Motion sensors detect the movements of the human body as visitors navigate through the darkened underground space, becoming performers in this intersection of art, technology and nature.

The VOID

THE VOID is a whole-body, fully immersive VR experience, full of surprises at every turn; with you, your family and friends inside the action. One second you’re standing on solid ground, the next you’re stepping deep into darkness, looking at unimaginable beauty – or fending off danger from another realm. Did you see it? Did you feel it? What’s next? You’ll just have to experience it to understand.
