Amazing Sculpture at Changi Airport

31st July 2012

This incredible moving art installation which has just been unveiled at Changi Airport in Singapore has to be seen to be believed. The sculpture called ‘Kinetic Rain’ was created by German design agency ART + COM and consists of 1,216 rain drop-shaped copper-plated aluminium beads, suspended on computer-controlled threads which move to create a captivating, undulating display of shapes including landscapes, rainfall and an aeroplane.

The aim of the sculpture is to develop an identity for the departure hall and create a moment for contemplation to contrast with the hectic nature of international travel. Senior vice president for airport operations, Yeo Kia Thye, stated: “With more than a thousand raindrops working together in harmony, Kinetic Rain symbolises the thousands in the airport community who work together every day to provide our passengers and visitors with a positively surprising and memorable Changi experience.”
