The title of the work refers to an optical experiment with prism conducted by Sir Issac Newton. He discovered and proved that white as such does not exist; it is but a sum of colours of light spectrum – the rainbow. Perceiving Western “white” culture, race and identity as relics that must be protected against external interference looses its credibility in context of white as a synthesis of all the particular colours. On the contrary, the work advocates openness towards external influences.
