Somewhere over the Liquid Rainbow

Because we like colour and stuff, we blogged about Edwin Deen's liquid rainbow, which is in fact, a garden sprinkler. Liquid Rainbow plays with the tension that occurs when the sun on a rainy day sends its rays to the earth and fills the sky with the elusive promise of a rainbow.

Believe it or not, this curious, colour-distributing instrument was once, wait for it, a mere garden sprinkler. Netherlands-based artist Edwin Deen repurposed the garden appliance by calling upon the support of some colour pigment and a hose, in order to pursue his interest in physical processes and the use of everyday objects. The 'Liquid Rainbow' was exhibited at Barry at the W, Amsterdam in August 2012.
