If you find yourself in Aarhus, Denmark, go to the ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum. Olafur Eliasson’s work ‘Your Rainbow Panorama’ was installed on the top of the building in May 2011. Visitors can travel up an elevator and walk around on the top of the building in this spectrum of colour and experience an incredible view of the city through various colours. I loved it.
The following words are taken from the artist’s own description of his work:
“Your rainbow panorama establishes a dialogue with the existing architecture and reinforces what was already there, that is to say the view across the city. I have created a space that can almost be said to erase the boundary between inside and outside – a place where you become a little uncertain as to whether you have stepped into a work of art 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 function.”
