French artist Vidya Gastaldon was one of those whose work featured in the Illusion of Light exhibition.  Though entitled Escalator, her work (created in 2007) was subtitled Rainbow Rain, and this was a far more appropriate description.  Consisting of dozens of threads of increasing length (perhaps suggesting the escalation referred to) each of these filaments was adorned with fragments of different coloured yarns, so that when viewed from eye level bands of colour gradually change from one to another across a rainbow like spectrum.

Being a photographer I looked for a different perspective from which to experience the downpour…Venezia-8
