KALEIDOSCOPE

This pavilion presents Man and Color – an adventure in color, motivation and sound. The exterior of the pavilion is round, with 112 fins painted in a spectrum of vivid colors surrounding the circular steel frame. Seen from Expo-Express, Minirail, or the ground, it appears to change its color. Entering the pavilion, the visitor is carried away by a world of moving colors. Using a completely unique process, this remarkable structure actually places one inside a kaleidoscope. The show proceeds through a 12 minute “day” from sunrise to nightfall, during which one experiences the emotional, psychological and even physical effects of color.

The modern shape and colors of Kaleidoscope were a marked contrast to the neighboring Thailand pavilion. (CD #1 Set 2 #33)
