Remember when the Global Rainbow beamed out from the Docks?

It was just two years ago when the light installation was beaming its coloured lasers across the city and beyond.

The creation of artist Yvette Mattern the lasers represented the colours of the rainbow and were cutting through the nights sky for a Saturday evening in early March in 2012.
