Colour spectrum kaleidoscope, 2003
A hexagonal kaleidoscope made of six different shades of highly reflective colour-effect filter glass is mounted on a stand at approximately eye height. One end consists of a narrow opening. On the opposite side of the kaleidoscope, at the large end, viewers peer in to see their surroundings and the movement of other viewers reflected in myriad colours and facets. This work was originally conceived by Eliasson for the Danish Pavilion at the 50th Venice Biennale, 2003.
