Kinetic Rain - the world’s largest moving art sculpture - Singapore Changi’s Terminal 1

VIDEO: World’s largest ‘kinetic art sculpture’ unveiled at Changi Airport
It is called Kinetic Rain, it is the world’s largest moving art sculpture – and it is based in an airport check-in hall.

Conceived as part of the refurbishments to Singapore Changi’s Terminal 1, the installation is made up of 1,216 bronze droplets connected to computer-controlled motors.

The motors control the movement of each droplet, allowing the droplets to make up multiple different aviation-related shapes.

Among the different forms the droplets take are an aeroplane, a hot air balloon, a kite, a dragon and a flock of birds.

Kinetic Rain, which was unveiled this week, took 20 months to put together, with artists, programmers and technologists, working as a team to create the masterpiece.

Yeo Kia Thye, senior vice president for airport operations, Changi Airport Group, said: “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.”

Audio commentary and a video – which passengers can download to their smartphone – are available for those wanting to know more about the sculpture.
