Michael Jones McKean, an American artist known for creating large-scale sculptural installations, has actually created a rainbow-making machine.

McKean has experimented with the machine in parking lots for years and is now preparing for a larger installation at the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts in Omaha, Nebraska.
