LIGHT RAIN is a light installation by Troika, that was commissioned by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office for the UK Pavilion at the World Expo in Shanghai 2012.
Troika created small lighting devices called 'light rain engines', which were specially designed for this installation. These devices, using powerful leds as well as precise motors and a simple but sophisticated arrangement of lenses, refract their white light sources to project a series of animated raindrops encircled by a halo of vibrant, rainbow coloured light on the floor of a walkway in the pavilion. From gentle drizzle to heavy rain, the light raindrops enliven the space, creating a beautiful and playful environment in which to reconsider the importance of one of the most simple and essential natural phenomena.
