How appropriate that it’s raining non stop outside and I cannot get into the Rain Room. Sigh.
My friend Caro and I thought visiting the MOMA on a weekday would help us bypass the supposedly insane line for the Rain Room. The Rain Room is an installation piece, where visitors can walk through a room of falling rain without getting wet. The rain stops wherever a person’s presence is detected. Sounds like an incredible experience. I wonder how my body and mind would react to such an unnatural occurrence.
Alas, even on a Wednesday afternoon, the wait was 3.5 hours. Apparently on the weekend it gets up to 7 to 8 hours of wait, and you are not guaranteed to even get in! For now I’m resorting to Google images until I get crazy enough to wait in line.
