A reflective palace of rainbows by Kimsooja

A reflective palace of rainbows by Kimsooja

Created in 2006 by multidisciplinary artist Kimsooja, he transformed the Palacio de Cristal into a multisensory sound and light experience. Outside light filters through the glass of the pavilion and reflects off the diffraction film. It diffuses into rainbow spectrums, transforming the external panorama seen from within the palace. The resulting effect is that the entire structure as well as the rays of colour reflecting off the mirrored floor.
