The sculpture is positioned in front of the International Air Terminal Building (Leif Eirikson Air Terminal) at Keflavík Airport. Installed; 1991.
I like to think of the Rainbow as an unfinished construction, and imagine that maybe one day – after some one hundred or one thousand years or so – someone might decide to continue the work.
The construction would reach higher and higher up into the sky, then decline again … until at last it would become a complete rainbow.
The height of the sculpture is 24 metres. The work is made of stainless steel and stained glass and rises from a low platform of huge tiles of natural stone (basalt).
