Material + Visual Worlds TAE talk: Anthony McCall

Anthony McCall (born 1946) is a British-born artist known for his ‘solid-light’ installations, a series that he began in 1973 with his seminal Line Describing a Cone, in which a volumetric form composed of projected light slowly evolves in three-dimensional space.
