Somewhere Over The Rainbow


Mark Goddard from the Potts Print (UK) Technical Services Team went down to the Global Rainbow event in Whitley Bay this week and took these spectacular shots of the lazer projection at St Mary’s lighthouse.


This is the UK premiere of the art piece by Yvette Mattern, which opens the Cultural Olympiad year in north east and north west England, and Northern Ireland.

The NewcastleGateshead website says:

Global Rainbow was initially created for projection in New York City on 19 January 2009 (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day) where it was projected from the top of a Wall Street skyscraper in downtown Manhattan. The beams extended from Brooklyn Bridge to the east and the Hudson River to the west, passing over Ground Zero. Subsequently, it has been shown in Berlin, Toulouse, Utrecht and Nantes.


You can see Global Rainbow until Sunday 4th March on Whitley Bay seafront, North Tyneside.
