For the past thirty years artist Stephen Knapp has been creating art installations that are heavily influenced by light. Working on a large scale Knapp prefers to use minimal tools to utilise light by capturing it within dichroic glass and then projecting it on to walls in array of colours.

The end result that you see projected onto the walls isn't planned, sketched or created on a computer and instead is created during the installation process enabling Knapp to adapt and choreograph the impressive light patterns.

Featured in exhibitions and art museums around the world Knapp aims to amaze his audience when they find out that he's able to make these artworks using nothing more than light. You can see more of his work here.
