Artist Transforms Madrid Greenhouse into Rainbow Palace

Korean artist Kimsooja splits her time between New York, Paris and Seoul, and has exhibited her work worldwide. This fantastic installation was done in the Palacio de Cristal in Madrid's Retiro Park. The greenhouse was transformed into a luminous, prismatic wonderland that the artist calls "To Breathe - A Mirror Woman."

To create the installation, translucent diffraction film was placed over the greenhouse glass, and mirrors were applied to the floor. There was a sound component to the installation as well: a recording of the artist breathing rhythmically. The total effect was a meditative sensory event bathed in rainbow colored rays of light.
