San Diego-based artist Roman de Salvo created four distinct installations for inSITE94 at the San Diego Natural History Museum. Titled "Rain Bow/Arco de lluvia," "Santa Ana," "Exits/Salidas," and "Mouse Hole/Ratonera," respectively, the pieces were located in areas of the museum not normally used for exhibition. Drawing attention to the marginal with a certain measure of wit, de Salvo's minimal yet rich interjections invited visitors to contemplate freely, without detailed exposition from the artist.
With "Rain Bow" engaging the drinking fountain pulls a cord which opens the shutter blinds, revealing an image of a rainbow over the park directly outside the museum.
