MoMA'S NEW RAIN ROOM LET'S YOU SING IN THE RAIN WITHOUT GETTING WET

MoMA's new installation, Rain Room by Random Internationalpart of PS1 MoMA's Expo1 NY—is enchantingly interactive: a room featuring rain at the main element, but unexpectedly stops when it detects a figure within its realms.  It employs 3D cameras to anticipate any human presence, allowing one to ponder and marvel over the interactive surrealism of the piece. 


So if you're in New York City, check it out: Now you can sing in the rain without actually getting wet, that is until July 28 when it ends.  In the meantime, have a watch at our featured video (above).  To learn more about the Rain Room by Random International at the MoMA, go HERE.  And for more on the Expo1: New York's full exhibition, go HERE.

CANNES FILM FESTIVAL SELECTION FOR 2013

This year the Cannes Film Festival's selection is quite provocative, rousing and definitely racy.  There are loads of great foreign films as per usual, but also lots of very compelling American films in the selection: with the likes of  Ryan Gosling, the return of Kristin Scott Thomas, a new film by Sofia Coppola starring Emma Watson, Marion Cotillard costarring with Joaquin Phoenix, and more.  


Some of our editor's picks for this year's Cannes 2013 are featured below.  Have a watch at the trailers and ready yourself for this summer's deluxe movie season.  For more on the Cannes Film Festival, go HERE.

PHOENIX COMES BACK BANKRUPT!

After taking a few years off to refuel, the band, Phoenix, has returned with their new album, Bankrupt! 


"We worked exactly two years on it," divulged lead singer, Thomas Mar.  Apparently, the band started the album with the songs placed in the middle of Bankrupt!, which they see as the "link" from their previous Grammy Winning Album of the Year, Wolfgang Amadeus.  Have a watch at the full interview (video featured above).  Phoenix is doing a small tour, with their New York concert coming up this May 13th, where they'll present a secret on stage, like last time when they ended up performing with Daft Punk at Madison Square Garden.  Their album, Bankrupt! came out yesterday, check it out HERE

THE DIRECTOR, FRIDA GIANNINI BY JAMES FRANCO

James Franco unleashes just another one of his infinitude projects: The Director.  Franco who seems to be imperceptibly all over the place—one can hardly catch up with this modern renaissance man—with the recent blockbuster success of the movie Oz and the release of the new controversial film Spring Breakers, comes out with a diversion, far and away from his acting career: producing and directing The Director, a new documentary on the Gucci Creative Director, Frida Giannini, which launched at the Tribeca Film Festival this week.
