Car Rainbow

April 2019


Adorning my car with a line of rainbow.

The original idea was to add a decoration that would distract from the various scratches and DIY repairs on my car. I started by calculating the length I’d need, then designing and ordering about five metres of rainbow “bumper” stickers in 30cm lengths. Then I mocked up the shape of the line with masking tape, and sat on it for a few days. In the end I went with a diagonal line rather than horizontal. It needed lots of adjustments to look straight from a distance, while dealing with the reality of curved surfaces. Once I received the stickers, careful application took three afternoons.





I’m still thinking as to what, if anything, I’d want to do on the front/back of the car.
