Kinetic Rain by ART+COM is a distinct art project installed above two escalators in Terminal 1 at the Singapore Airport. This project is composed of 608 copper-covered aluminum rain droplets that are held up by steel rods.

A motor powered by a computer was placed in the ceiling to make these droplets appear to be floating above the escalators. The computer has the droplets on a 15-minute pattern where they move back and forth together simultaneously.

Since the 1950s, kinetic art has been a prevalent art form, and with advanced computer technology three-dimensional kinetic sculptures are rising in popularity. They consist of moving parts that are controlled by some form of motor. This art installation is a beautiful addition to the busy airport.
