Kaleidoscopic Pavilion in Iowa by Olafur Eliasson6

The ‘Panoramic Awareness Pavilion’ was created by Olafur Eliasson and is currently installed at the John and Mary Pappajohn Sculpture Park at the Des Moines Art Center in Iowa. With the installation, Eliasson continues to explore the boundaries of light and color that will intensify the experience of viewers on his works while altering their perception of their surrounding environment. Each panel has been designed with a reflective coating that makes it function like opaque mirrors. The panels gradually transform into strips of transparent colored-glass at their centers giving off a kaleidoscopic rainbow effect.
