3 Nov 2017 to 2 Dec 2017
This November Melbourne will be home to the nightly apparition of Monotone Rainbow at Testing Grounds art space, Southbank. While open to a multitude of interpretations, the large-scale rainbow installation stripped of colour most poignantly echoes contemporary fears for the fates of equality and climate change.
Each evening at dusk a ghostly rainbow will appear like an ethereal apparition. The project extends the artists interest in technology and optical phenomenon to create a black and white holographic rainbow. Recycled water and rear projection technology will form the illusion of a rainbow – stripped of the full colour saturation. Reminiscent of online gaming ‘nature’ interfaces, the ethereal spectre will be like a 3D hologram, manifesting each evening against the darkening sky.
Monotone Rainbow is supported by the City Of Melbourne Arts Grants Program.
Monotone Rainbow launches with a public opening at Testing Grounds on Friday 3rd of November at 6pm and is open to the public Wednesday to Saturday evening from dusk until 2 December.
Testing Grounds is wheelchair accessible.
