Overview

Wave of Rainbow is an interactive public artwork formed by an interactive tunnel of several colorful jumping fountains.

The fountains are jumping in the tunnel constantly and when someone entry inside it, the fountains start arching with colors by following the journey of the person inside the tunnel.

The system is controlled by presence sensors, which activate the water jumping fountain’s behavior.

The concept of the proposed project is about adding fantasy in one’s journey while visiting the park and making it a fanciful experience. To accomplish that the artworks use technology to evoke, in a cheerful and metaphoric way, feelings of acceptance, belonging and self-stem.
