YOUR RAINBOW PANORAMA by Studio Olafur Eliasson

Artist Olafur Eliasson's latest installation, Your rainbow panorama, is a viewing platform set on the rooftop of the ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Denmark.
Eliasson says of the installation, "I think of Your rainbow panorama as a mediator that forges relations between these three: you, ARoS, and the city of Aarhus. It is a vehicle for looking anew, which frames views and frames you as you proceed through the seamless walkway of subtly transforming colour atmospheres. What you experience may be of both panoramic scope and introspective quality – you may see yourself seeing. Sometimes alone, mostly with others."
"I see it as an orientation tool. Dividing Aarhus into colour zones, it has the qualities of a lighthouse: it draws attention not only to itself, but also to your physical location in Aarhus. For people living in the city and moving through the different times of day, the work becomes a compass in time and space."
