Chris Fraser places slots and holes in walls to manipulate the light source, creating a variety of shapes and designs.

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.
