Somewhere over the Liquid Rainbow

Posted by Charlotte Broomfield on 30th September 2013

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.
