The art of creating rainbows

Rainbow machine

This bright yellow artwork, temporarily at home on our Southern Lawn, encourages people of all ages to learn about the science of creating rainbows, bringing together a unique mix of art, science and engineering to create a fun, interactive experience.

Rainbow Machine is a mobile artwork designed and built by artists, architects and scientists working together. The three artists are Sarosh Mulla, Shahriar Asdollah-Zadeh and Patrick Loo; scientists from Callaghan Innovation and Kiwistar Optics also provided their expertise.

This engaging sculpture uses eight custom-made lenses to reflect and refract light. The lenses and the module were built using innovative technology and new manufacturing processes.

Rainbow Machine is a mobile artwork and part of the Auckland Council Public Art Collection.
