Bay Area artist Chris Fraser uses the refractive power of light for his series of interactive installations. He places slits and cracks in walls to manipulate the light source as it spills out onto the opposite surface.

This is then further manipulated through interaction with visitors, creating a variety of shapes and designs. Fraser’s exhibits produce large abstract canvases painted with refracted beams of light.

He is currently showing ‘In Passing’ at Disjecta Contemporary Art Center in Oregon, which is the first time he has worked with colored lights. This interactive and immersive experience enables visitors to walk through a long white corridor in the gallery.

Vertical and diagonal cracks in the walls allow light from blue, green, and red covered pendant lights to spill in and cast colorful prisms on the surfaces. These can be manipulated further by visitors as they walk along and interrupt the rays of light. Click through to see images of Fraser’s installations:
