LA-based artist Megan Geckler recently completed work on her latest multi-colored tape installation inside the 6-story atrium of the historic Customs House building in Sydney. The suspended artwork titled “A million things that make your head spin” was produced with 14 kilometers (46,000 feet) of flagging tape with the help of several volunteers. Like a swirling tornado of color, the piece dominates the interior space of the building utilized as a cultural hub located in the city’s Circular Quay area. More

In celebration of The National Art Center of Tokyo‘s 10th anniversary, French architect Emmanuelle Moureaux was commissioned to fill the institution’s 6500 square foot exhibition space with her vision of the decade to come. Unsurprisingly, Moureaux, whose practice often involves layering color within space, decided to transform the white cube into a rainbow forest filled with more than 60,000 multi-colored numbers arranged in three dimensional grids.

The work changes from a deep violet to an ecstatic red, allowing one to traverse through an immersive collection of colors. More

Spiraling Rainbow Vortexes Created From Layered Paper by Jen Stark

Spiraling Rainbow Vortexes Created From Layered Paper by Jen Stark

Jen Stark's work appears like psychedelic wormholes, pulsating and multi-colored portals that might throw you into another dimension entirely. Working outward from an equally prismatic core, the pieces radiate entire spectrums of color from layered paper, PVC, or foam board. These contrasting colors and repetition give the works a feeling of movement and cyclical regeneration and feel almost as if one is staring into a deep and hypnotizing cavern.
Stark’s work concentrates on this hypnotic feel, both in its aesthetic and time-intensive process of layering hundreds of material components. More

A digital artist and photographer who goes by the name Kagaya recently spotted this unusual sight of a commercial airliner appearing to blast a contrail of rainbows out of its engines. Spotted above Oshino-Mura, Yamanashi Prefecture in Japan, the rare phenomenon is most likely a form of cloud iridescence caused by the perfect convergence of water vapor and sunlight. Kagaya explains that he was nowhere near the event and had to use a long telephoto lens to zoom in on the plane. More

Over the last few days Las Vegas-based barista Mason Salisbury has been surprising some of his customers by pouring a regular looking latte or cappuccino that suddenly ends with a flourish of foamy color. The technicolor beverages resemble the patterns from tie dye t-shirts and are fully edible, though exactly what happens to your insides afterward is still TBD. You can watch Salisbury pour a few of the drinks in videos below and see more on Instagram. More

Japanese design studio Nendo (previously) just announced their first product designs for 2016 including the Sunset Candle. On the outside the candle appears completely white, but the inside contains a hidden core of colored wax evoking the hues of a sunset that gradually appears as it burns. Not only does the candle change color, but each stage is scented differently, emitting fragrances of bergamot, lemongrass, sweet marjoram, lavender, and geranium. More

Artist Julien “Seth” Malland aka Seth Globepainter has become known around the world for his vibrant murals of people, most frequently children, who appear to be sucked into colorful rainbow-like voids. The figures are usually facing away from the viewer, their attention completely swallowed by pools of dripping color revealed behind drab, urban facades. Seth has been active in the Parisian graffiti scene since the 1990s and has written or participated in several books over the last few years. More
