Have you ever wanted to walk on a rainbow? Then you should visit “Your Rainbow Panorama” by Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson. It is a circular colored glass walkway that sits atop the ARoS art museum in Aarhus, Denmark and gives its visitors a 360° colorful view of the city. This unique rooftop is 150 meters long, 3 meters wide and 3 meters high, has a diameter of 52 meters and is mounted on slender columns 3.5 meters above the roof surface of the museum.
“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,” says the artist.
