Global Rainbow

March 1, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Global rainbow is an ongoing light installation by Yvette Mattern consisting of seven parallel laser beams representing a rainbow that’s being projected over populated urban areas and is meant “to encompass geographical and social diversity in its reach and symbolise hope.” The installation was switched on in the UK for the first time last night over the North Tyneside coastline and will be making several additional stops over the next few weeks. You can read more about Global Rainbow on Mattern’s blog and see tons of great photos here. (via simon lowe, bbc, hervé)
