Anthony McCall's Light Sculptures

Documentation photos of Anthony McCall's light sculptures show a fantastic sense of artistry with light. How does the artist create these fine lines in light with the sharp "curtain" from its source?

I'm really fascinated by this sense of a plane of light, which McCall has been working on since the 70s. Apparently he uses a thin mist which makes the light appear 'solid' from a simple projection. McCall also says that the light sculptures are scaled to the size of a human body, so that a person can reach the full extent of a projection all the way to its source.
