Diana Thater's work explores the effects of colors, especially through the separation of color channels in projection. Her subjects are primarily organic, including plants, animals, and landscapes, presented in bright, dreamy color. 

Her projections are often accessible to the viewer allowing them to engage directly with the images presented. This is particularly interesting since the works do not openly invite viewers to interact, but despite any clear invitation, most do anyways. People seem to enjoy seeing themselves inserted into her environments, though they appear as only silhouettes. 

The strongest works in the exhibition are those that are dynamic - works that contain only static images do not offer the same opportunity for engagement, and the amount of viewers interacting with them supports that. The video works act more like portals into new worlds, while the static images remind the viewer that they are simply observing a screen or projection.
