Transfixing Airport Installation Makes Going Through Security Actually Pleasant

Nope, it's not a museum. The mesmerising video above is of "Kinetic Rain," an installation in Terminal 1 of Singapore's Changi Airport.

Created by Berlin firm ART+COM, the weather-inspired sculpture comprises two sections, each of which has 608 rain drops — tear-shaped droplets are made of lightweight aluminium covered with copper affixed to steel ropes. They dance to a 15-minute pre-programmed routine, manned by a computer-controlled machine hidden in the ceiling above. It's so hypnotising, you could stare at it for hours. Just don't miss your flight. [Hungeree via This Is Colassal]
