    The Rainbow was a site-specific installation made for the courtyard of the National Gallery of Victoria, in Melbourne. It was a large inflatable arch, held taut by a high air pressure. Spanning the diagonal of the courtyard, this inflatable arch was made of rainbow-coloured bands, and a perforated hose that was attached all along its underside released a fine spray of water beneath it. Under the right conditions, the sun would create a real rainbow in this artificially generated mist.
