Seven Melting Rainbows is a limited edition box with of 7 high quality unique prints on archival pigment prints, from the series Melting Rainbows (2010)by Taisuke Koyama. This publication was premiered on the occasion of Paris Photo 2018, where Koyama presented the site specific exhibition Waves and Particles, an installation and combination of his most recent series reflecting on the light and color behavior in natural phenomenons and digital environments. Koyama started his personal exploration of digitized photographic media, creating some artificial rainbows models, entitled Rainbow Form and made by capturing close-up shots of rainbow-colored advertisement posters located on some vending machines in Tokyo. To realize the Melting Rainbows series, Koyama exposed the original prints of Rainbow Form to atmospheric agents on his own balcony and then re-photographed them, showing how the colorful image structure had transformed.
