Kinetic Rain

DYNAMIC ART INSPIRED BY TROPICAL SINGAPORE

Made up of 1,216 bronze droplets, the Kinetic Rain sculpture in Terminal 1 is one of the favourites among Changi Airport’s collection of art installations and displays. Measuring 9.8m by 4m, each sculpture can form 16 different shapes ranging from the abstract to the familiar, such as an aeroplane, a hot air balloon, and even a dragon. Each shape elucidates the movement of flight through deliberate, fluid movements.

Created over a period of 20 months, Kinetic Rain comprises 180g of copper-plated aluminium droplets, of which choreography is controlled by a set of high precision motors. The project is the brainchild of artists, programmers and technologists who analysed space, passenger flow, and the bustle of activity at the airport to create an artwork that enhances the identity of Terminal 1.

With more than a thousand 'raindrops' working together in harmony, Kinetic Rain also symbolises the members of the airport community collaborating to provide a Positively Surprising Changi experience for passengers and visitors.
