RAW Rainbow Installation
Andrew Morris

RAW Rainbow is a community-driven public art installation made from sustainably-sourced ribbon.

The installation transforms a footbridge at Royal Albert Wharf into a giant rainbow, a symbolic landmark of hope in Newham, east London.

Created in response to the global pandemic, the project was initiated to bring local residents together whilst maintaining social distancing, and to help ease the pressures felt by so many on their physical and mental health and wellbeing during the lockdown.

It has shown how a creative activity can unite individuals and bring value to the community during these unprecedented times.

This project has been longlisted in the installation design project category of Dezeen Awards 2020.

Designer: Studio Curiosity
