SINGAPORE - Changi Airport's Kinetic Rain installation at Terminal 1 is now back in operation.

On Saturday, a woman had climbed over a glass barrier to reach the netting under the sculpture suspended several metres above the ground, damaging it in the process. The woman, who is described to be in her 30s, was later arrested by the police under the Mental Health act.

The installation is billed as the world's largest kinetic, or moving structure, and spans the length of four check-in counters.

It was made by German design firm Art_Com led by a German-based Finnish artist, Jussi Angleva, and was officially opened on July 18.

Kinetic Rain comes as a pair of sculptures consisting of 1,216 'droplets', which are computer-programmed to transform into various shapes such as aeroplanes, kites, and a hot air balloon.
