Rainbow is a project that questions identity and its multiple facets. During the last research phases this project has shown itself as multiple in its form. Four forms develop simultaneously containing the same building blocks and emerging from the same research material: The Video installation, the Performance with live music, the Immersive installation and the Rainbow Fountain.
The Rainbow - Fountain is born out of the desire to develop a research around reflecting and refracting light and the attempt to create a miniature rainbow. Creating a miniature rainbow is the attempt to create an optical effect, which cannot be physically approached. A rainbow is not an object and does not exist at a particular location. So how is it actually to touch the end of a rainbow?
In the same way as rainbows are formed by the reflection, refraction and dispersion of sunlight by raindrops, we all are the result of an infinity of reflections or refractions of the encounters that we make during our life, and this from the beginning, with our first meeting – that with our family.
Our identity is plural. There is no one and only point of view, although we are constantly confronted with a simplifying categorization (right and left, young and old, man and woman, etc.) It seems obvious, however, that we are complex human beings with different facets and layers that accumulate throughout our lives and that therefore we are several things at the same time.
