Rainbow Park

Rainbow Park has been designed to stimulate imagination by allowing the audience to interact with the installation.

150 tons of colored and plain sand is a distinctive and interactive element; spectators walking all over the park, preferably barefoot, mix the colors especially on the edges of sand spots, in such a way that new colors appear, e.g. on the edge of red and blue violet come into being, yellow sand mixed with red produces orange etc. In course of time spots were mixing and new composition of quality of color, emerged and smoothly turned into another color resembles the light spectrum. This installation represents entropy and fun. It mixes emotions of contemplation and enjoyment just as easily as it mixes the sand within.

Colorful sculptural units where over 50 different colors are applied can also be used as benches to  relax within the installation itself. Sand gradation differs from 0, 5 mm to up 5 mm of a grain so the sense of touch is also activated along with the sense of sight. Around 25 painted boulders are spread throughout the park.

At least five hundred thousands of participants passed through the park during 3 months period located on one of the busiest route along river Thames in London.
