It is hard not to be entirely mesmerized by these geometric dichroic glass installations. Taking on the shape of abstract mazes and mandalas, the wall-mounted sculptures are full of colorful light that will bring to mind stained glass creations, granted in a more contemporary vein. Enchantingly prismatic, the geometric dichroic glass installations are both simple and complex, which allows viewers to interpret them in a variety of different ways.

Created by Chris Wood, an artist based in Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom, the geometric dichroic glass installations are his way of exploring the aesthetic potential of light. He writes, "Minimal structures, support simple arrangements of glass, which interact with light to create complex patterns of light and shade, which change depending upon the position of the viewer and the angle of the light source."
