Chris Wood is a UK-based artist who uses in her works colored glass. She creates colorful mazes and mandalas of light that are installed on the walls. She uses mostly dichroic glass, a material that has a special coating that reflects some wavelengths of light and lets others through.
Chris Wood most common material is dichroic (meaning ‘two color’) glass, a material invented by NASA in the 1950s that has a special optical coating meant to reflect certain wavelengths of light while letting others through. At some angles the glass appears completely reflective, somewhat like a mirror of gold.
Chris Wood directs optical projections towards each dynamic, wall mounted structure in order to control how light hits each piece. Through this creative illumination, her visually intriguing, geometric formations are quickly transformed into sparkling patterns of color and texture.
