Glass wall panel installation by UK based artist Chris Wood. She says that her work is about expressing the “magic of light”. Um… nailed it! She uses dichroic glass, and in case you’ve never heard of dichroic glass, (meaning two colour). Developed in the late fifties by NASA to protect against the potentially harmful effects of direct sunlight and cosmic radiation. It is a material that very eloquently expresses the magic of the phenomenon of light.”
