The work done at Random International is known for being "experimental" which is a word that can be taken two ways when describing a art studio. But isnt a stuio like this what the art world should be celebrating? Somebody who wants to push beyond the lines of what contemporary art should be or its expectations of it. Thats exactly what art should do, break the idea of what you thought was art, get the gears of the mind turning.
Based in London the studio uses science to consider the man and machine relationship with the viewer as an active participant, for example the newest craze to hit L.A. "The Rain Room" has people talking. There is a field of falling water that pauses whenever a human body is present, the viewer interaction invites vistor's to see the roles that technology can play and encourages people to set their own performance which makes it a very intimate experience. By offering the seemingly impossible dream we have all had of being able to walk through the rain without the soaking wet outcome is just magical in itself.
Providing a sensory experience and being an active participant in an art piece is not something you would expect from going to view art but all the work at Random International continues to do just that which makes it stand out among all other art studios.
