A site specific installation, where the 8 volumes in the Kanno Museum are used to create a rainbow. The arrangement of windows, as well as the placement angle texture of walls act analogous to prism, where white sun light is broken into multiple colors, to create a complex mixture of eight different colors. The intensity and colors of the rainbow change according to the exterior lighting conditions and create a dynamic relation between the space and light.
