Philosopher René Descartes (1596-1650) was the first to scientifically explain a rainbow in 1636, while he was living in Amsterdam. Naturally, a rainbow is elusive, no one will ever find the foot nor the pot of gold that would be there. However, Artist and light designer Gilbert Moity (FR) firmly plants a rainbow in the middle of a cityscape, tangible and contrasting with the dark night.
With Bridge of the Rainbow he creates a connection of two banks and the illusion of a gate. The artwork symbolizes the openness and diversity, and the color range also represents the LGBTQIA community which is vital to most city's identity and colourfulness.
