Olafur Eliasson's Your Rainbow PanoramaJuxtapoz // Monday, 20 Jun 2011
Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson just opened his newest installation piece, Your Rainbow Panorama, a permanent structure that provides a 360º view of the city of Arhus, Denmark. The structure sits above the ARoS Museum of Art.
As DesignBoom notes, "measuring 150 meters around, the transparent glass unit is designed to act as a visual compass for the city, its colors marking the physical location of each visitor. Enveloped in the rainbow-like atmosphere, the user produces afterimages in hues complimentary to the colors that
surround them, altering and defining the perception of the city that lies below."
