Introduction by: ,

James Turrell is an artist whose primary concern is light, space, and visual perception. Turrell discusses the psychology of perception, and how he uses light to inhabit space giving light a sensory experience akin to touch or taste. Through analysis of visual phenomenon he creates art that often uses architecture not as a medium but rather as a vessel through which his art is made manifest. Turrell presents numerous projects that range from small-scale installations to an immense earthwork project at Roden Crater in Arizona.
