In the 1970s, Bauermeister began to study fringe sciences, including various geomancies, or forms of divination. It was during this period that she made "Rainbow," a work that serves as a mind map interweaving ideas and experiences from the artist's life. With words such as sickness, cancer, love, and healing depicted, thoughts flow from negative to positive, invoking hope for brighter things.
