Olafur Eliasson’s “Your Rainbow Panorama” Crowns Danish City Of Aarhus With Sublime Multi-Colored Ring Walkway

Artist Olafur Eliasson‘s latest achievement is the incredible “Your Rainbow Panorama” sitting atop Denmark’s ARoS Art Museum in the city of Aarhus.  Perched on delicate columns 12-feet above the roof of the museum, the UFO-like structure consists of curved glass multi-colored panels embedded with colored foil which gives the ring structure its signature rainbow-like hues.  The 490-foot-long circular path opened this past May, and its eye-popping colors are not lost in the night sky thanks to the recessed lighting that sets “Panorama” aglow.  Aarhus’s Viking history dates back to the 8th century, and this waterfront city’s architectural gems are given a brilliant observational setting with the new installation.  Eliasson himself affectionately refers to “Panorama” as a lighthouse, saying, “The work becomes a compass in time and space.”
