How would you show the value of water? I bet the first response would be to hang 2,500 illuminated condoms from string to signify water droplets, would it? But that is exactly what Luzinterruptus have done with their immersive, public installation Rain Interactive in the Taiwanese city of Kaohsiung. Within two outdoor walkways, the anonymous artistic group has suspended 2,500 illuminated condoms from a structural grid, forming large, luminous ‘droplets’ that surrounds visitors.

The condoms have been filled with blue coloured water and suspended at varying heights from a net overhead, forming a luminous expanse for visitors to walk through and interact with. Subtly glowing by night, the water-filled orbs transform the space into a multi-sensory environment suitable for all audiences… well kind of.
