RAINBOW is conceived as a small theatre in which the visitor becomes the main actor: inside a box, they manipulates a lever that, besides recreating the sound of rain, it changes the position of a lightbulb and, consequently, the projected colours and shadows.
The project was initially presented in Brussels; sadly, too often homophobic attacks happen in that city. I personally wanted to denounce this violence and invite anyone to project their silhouette with the rainbow background outside of the box.
RAINBOW has been showcased at:
La Bellone-Maison du spectacle. Brussels, 2014
London Festival of Architecture. June 2015
Zealous X. Rich Mix, London. 7-17th Jan 2016
Barbara Coeckelberghs, Yamina El Atlassi and Olivier Goldstein
Rhizome-design and Francesc Serra Vila
