Random International are the creators behind the immersive spectacle 'Rain Room'

Random International is a collaborative studio for experimental practice within contemporary art. Founded in 2005 by Hannes Koch and Florian
Ortkrass, the studio now includes a larger team in London and Berlin. Questioning aspects of identity and autonomy in the post-digital age, Random
International’s work invites active participation. Their work Rain Room—a large-scale environment of continual, responsive rainfall—has been exhibited
at Los Angeles County Museum of Art (2015); Yuz Museum, Shanghai (2015); Museum of Modern Art, New York (2013); and London's Barbican (2012). The
studio’s work formed part of the Lichtsicht Biennale (2015), Ruhrtriennale (2013), and Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art (2011). Solo presentations
of their work have been exhibited at Lunds konsthall, Sweden (2014) and Carpenters Workshop Gallery, Paris (2012). Their work is in the collections of
MoMA, LACMA and Victoria & Albert Museum, where their Swarm Study III is on long-term display.
