James Turrell, Roden Crater

July 14, 2010 at 02:39 Leave a comment

He is best known for his work in progress, Roden Crater. He acquired the crater in 1979 [2]. Located outside Flagstaff, Arizona, Turrell is turning this natural cinder volcanic crater into a massive naked-eye observatory, designed specifically for the viewing of celestial phenomena. His other works usually enclose the viewer in order to control their perception of light; a James Turrell skyspace is an enclosed room large enough for roughly 15 people. Inside, the viewers sit on benches along the edge to view the sky through an opening in the roof.
