Dichroic & Light
Wood’s practice is primarily concerned with the medium of dichroic glass, which was originally developed by NASA space agency as a colourless material that filters and reflects wavelengths of light producing a spectrum of rainbow coloured shadows and projections.
Working with the intangible medium of light, Wood orchestrates a range of high and low-tech optical materials to harness patterns of light that suggest ephemeral glimpsed moments in the natural world. The artist’s sculptures are refined and often minimal arrangements creating kinetic patterns in response to the environments in which they are placed.
