Entertaining Set ups from Sharp Breaks of Light

Oakland-based specialist Chris Fraser has designed an amazing set of sight-specific installations that all involve sharp cracks of of light. He tactically makes gaps or cuts in surfaces, cajoling mild into various structures. His performs are often interactive, offering the audience with a unforgettable and exclusive encounter.

In the Make has a great meeting with Fraser where he explains his innovative process and what he wishes to achieve as an specialist.
"I would like my work to point back into the world. I spend a lot of time crafting specific situations, framing light in such a way that it reveals a portion of the complex order within the ambient environment. But there is nothing particularly special about the light that enters these works. Echoes of this same order can be found in your home, entering your windows, skirting around furniture, slipping through a crack in the door. I want to call attention to a type of beauty that usually goes unnoticed."
Fraser is currently displaying In Moving at Disjecta Modern Art Center in Portland, Oregon until April 2, 2013. His most committed perform up to now, the display is described by Visible Art Resource as a"wonderland of color and line." Fraser has designed a three-sided arena with white-colored surfaces. Guests stroll through the dark lounge suffering from supports of shaded light as it goes through the surfaces. 

Here's Willamette Week's radiant review :
"If you haven’t seen Chris Fraser’s installation In Passing, run, don’t walk, to check out what is certain to be one of 2013’s most crowd-pleasing, trippy and sheer f*ing gorgeous shows. The San Francisco-based artist worked with curator-in-residence Josephine Zarkovich to create an immersive experience, which viewers walk through. There’s a long, three-sided corridor on the gallery’s perimeter, with vertical and diagonal slots that spray prisms of colored light onto the interior walls. When you come to the hallway’s corners, the light plays tricks with your eyes, creating a foggy atmosphere that is pure optical illusion. It’s one part James Turrell, one part 2001: A Space Odyssey. You simply have to see it."

The Diving Horses of Atlantic City

For nearly half a century, Atlantic City, in New Jersey, United States, was home to an attraction almost too fantastical to believe—an apparently fearless horse with a young woman on its back would leap off a tower some 40 feet high into a pool of water below. The stunt took place at Atlantic City's popular venue Steel Pier, where trained horses took the plunge up to four times a day and seven days a week.
