dancing in the rain

AutoGene is a wonderful installation by Peter William Holden showing a group of umbrellas dancing to the famous "singing in th rain" by Gene Kelly.

"Busby Berkeley choreographed dancers to mimic the motions of machines and modern inventions. AutoGene is the flipside of this. Its a simple aesthetic looking robot composed of eight modified umbrellas mounted in a circular pattern. A cocktail of air hoses and electrical cables join these umbrellas to a central computer which enables AutoGene to produce a choreographed dance to music which erodes the machines mechanical qualities and transforms the mundane umbrellas into magical animated objects." video here
