Aros, Aarhus / by Monica Monté

A few weeks ago, I travelled to Aarhus in Denmark. I went to help out a client of mine but I also took the time to visit Aros, the museum of modern art. 

The museum has an an art installation on the roof by the artist Olafur Eliasson. I heard about it over 2 years ago and ever since I wanted to visit this installation. 

It is called Your rainbow panorama and it is an enormous coloured glass ring which you can enter and walk around in the inside. Aarhus becomes a colourful city and every colour evokes a different emotion. It is incredibly beautiful and touching!

I visited it during the day and I went back again in the evening to get a different light and also a different experience. I kept walking around in and around the circle over and over again. I just couldn't get enough of it.

Aarhus will be the European cultural capital in 2017 so if you want to see Eliasson's installation before the masses, you should go now.
