Geometric Arrangements of Colorful Glass Reflect Gorgeous Patterns of Light

Given her last name, you wouldn’t immediately expect that Cambridgeshire-based artist Chris Wood’s material of choice is delicate pieces of glass. Using small squares, Wood designs captivating arrangements and relies on light and reflection to influence her colorfully dazzling final products.

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.

Wood explains, “Glass is a material which allows me to exploit the aesthetic potential of light. Minimal structures, support simple arrangements of glass, which interact with light to create complex patterns of light and shade, which change depending upon the position of the viewer and the angle of the light source.”
