Vivid Rainbow Roads Trace Illuminated Pathways Across Forests and Beaches


The artist, Daniel Mercadante, had recently relocated from sunny California to rural Connecticut, and missed the “warmth” of his old home surrounded by the “chilly blue hour” of the more frigid climate of the Northeast. So, he photographed self-made rainbow roads by running around with a lightning rig and long-exposure photography. This reminds me of the various ways people approach problem solving discussed in class. In order to face the cold, some people buy weighted blankets or stock up on heat packs. But Mercadante took an aesthetic approach to battling the cooler winters, which I thought was a unique way to think about this problem (though it may not be the most practical solution).
