Pic of the Day: Olafur Eliasson’s ‘Your Rainbow Panorama’

Like a modern day version of Rainbow Brite’s Color Castle, Olafur Eliasson’s latest installation, Your rainbow panorama, is a candy-colored platform atop the ARoS Museum of Art that provides a 360º view of the city of Arhus, Denmark. Simply put, after looking at the magical photos, we really, really want to go to there. “I see Your rainbow panorama as an orientation tool,” explains Eliasson in his artist statement. “Dividing Aarhus into color 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.” Click through for some additional images of the work.
