Olafur Elliasson: Your Rainbow PanoramaJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 13 Mar 2012
We have shown you this project before, but not the video. Choose what hue or tint you would like to view the world in. The rooftop at the Aros Museum in Aarthus, Denmark permanently hosts this circular rainbow walkway designed by Olafur Elliasson. At night, the installation is lit up from inside by spotlights embedded in the floor.
“Your rainbow panorama enters into a dialogue with the existing architecture and reinforces what is assured beforehand, that is to say the view of the city. I have created a space which virtually erases the boundaries between inside and outside – where people become a little uncertain as to whether they have stepped into a work or into part of the museum. This uncertainty is important to me, as it encourages people to think and sense beyond the limits within which they are accustomed to moving”. -Olafur Eliasson
