Description The works of Anthony McCall exist on the boundaries between film,sculpture, and drawing. They are fleeting, and yet they appear solid and tangible, inviting the viewer to interact with the artwork. McCall first became known in the early 1970s with his unique light installations, Solid Light Films. These consisted of animated lines of light projected in a dark, misty room; the resulting three dimensional forms slowly move about the space. The artist began this series in 1973 with the influential film Line Describing a Cone, and further developed his ideas in installations such as Long Film for Four Projectors (1974). Following a creative hiatus of over twenty years, McCall returned to these projects after the turn of the millennium. The availability of computer animation and digital projection has given him the means to formulate his conceptual work in new ways.
