Rainbows usually take the form of an arc and are seen outdoors as a result of a natural phenomenon, but now you can see one indoors without the use of a prism by visiting artist Gariel Dawe's impressive art installation in Dallas, Texas, called 'The Rainbow Effect.'

Dawe has recreated the colorful spectrum by interlacing differently colored Gutermann threads together and then holding them in place with wood and nails. The result is a surreal rainbow that appears translucent with a trippy 3D illusion when viewed from a distance. This is an inspiring piece of work that makes us think what a rainbow can look like when it's shape and size is manipulated.
