See what the artist collective rAndom International is up to next:
rAndom International’s first outdoor artwork will debut at the Ruhr Triennale in Essen, Germany, on August 23. The work titled Tower is a site-specific installation for the Zollverien coal mine in Essen. It is located at Welterbe Zollverein, Schacht XII – a former coke oven – and uses the region’s plentiful natural resource: water.
Tower is a vast, temporary structure consisting of geometric displays of water, which fall from a great height and create a monolithic structure, an ephemeral tower that appears and disappears instantaneously. The sound of the falling rain is intensely loud and a sensation of moisture lingers in the air.
The architecture of the space becomes performative, inviting those within it to experience the water of Zeche Zollverein in a uniquely physical and intimate way.
