Olafur Eliasson has virtually erased the boundaries between inside and outside, and between museum and artwork, in an effort to encourage people to think and sense beyond their traditional limits.
Your Rainbow Panorama is a permanent architectural work of art that sits 3.5 meters above the roof surface of ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum. Fifty-two meters in diameter, with a 150 meter walkway length, it is housed in glass that spans the colors of the visible spectrum. Visitors can stroll along the circle, experiencing a distinctive panoramic view of the city and of Århus Bay. The roof surface just below has been covered in wood and turned into a recreational area with viewing platforms.
Your Rainbow Panorama also completes the ARoS building scheme of Dante’s “Divine Comedy.” “The 9 Spaces” sits in the basement level, representative of the underworld, while Eliasson’s Panorama crowns the building’s reach toward heaven.
