Magical art installation projects light to create the illusion of rain

Wow, how magical. Light Rain, an light installation by Troika, was commissioned for the World Expo’s UK Pavilion in Shanghai 2012 and saw the group creating ‘light rain engines’ that cast moving visuals of raindrops onto floors to create the illusion of real rain. It is now part of the iLight festival in Singapore this month.
