Your Rainbow Panorama
Your rainbow panorama, located on the roof of ARoS Aarhus Art Museum, is the sensational permanent artwork by Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson. This art installation allows visitors to have a walk around the work and view the surrounding city of Aarhus through every colour of the rainbow giving you a unique panoramic view of the city.
On a silent day, if you raise your voice you can hear it travelling back to you from around the circular room. The rooftop project is made in the form of a 150 meters long circle with a large glass walkway that is measuring 52 metres in diameter and gives guests the feeling of walking through a rainbow.
Eliasson, the artist behind Your Rainbow Panorama, was said to be inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy and finally reaching the perfection of Paradise. He created Your Rainbow Panorama to add to something that was already there (the view of Aarhus) and to make people think about where art ends and the museum begins.
