These days, light artists like New York based Brit Anthony McCall has an international following for his large scale works where audiences get to interact with and change the shapes he creates with light. They're often in the form of massive solid looking cones of light that you can walk under or through. Anthony's work is part of Auckland Art Gallery's Light Show.
