A man checks his phone as he experiences the 'Rain Room' art installation by 'Random International' in The Curve at the Barbican Centre on Oct. 3, in London, England.

The 'Rain Room' is a 100 square meter field of falling water which visitors are invited to walk into, with sensors detecting where the visitors are standing, preventing them from getting wet. The Guardian's Oliver Wainwright visited the installation and experienced what it was like to "control the elements" and stay completely dry amid a downpour. The installation opens to the public on October 4, 2012 and runs until March 3, 2013.
