A new solo exhibition by James Clar in conjunction with the Festival of Light, "Portal" is an installation on display at the Roger Tator Galerie in Lyon, France.

Portal consists of a diffuser screen that acts as an abstract doorway with lines of light that travel back and forth through it, bouncing around the room. As a doorway represents the transition from one space to another, Portal visually displays this moment of change as a 2D plane using the diffuser screen.

Additionally, a sensor at the doorway of the gallery space triggers the lasers to change color as people enter also signifying their transition from the outside space to the inside gallery.
