Global rainbow

18 July 2012

Global Rainbow by Yvette Mattern is a large scale, spectacular outdoor laser projection which stretches five miles into the sky. Created by American artist, Yvette Mattern, the seven beams of light represent the colours of the rainbow and are intended to symbolise hope.

The light installation was shown in two venues in the north of England and one in Northern Ireland earlier this year. It celebrated the Cultural Olympiad, a series of arts events throughout the country in the run-up to the Olympic Games.
