James Turrell- Master of Color and Light

View looking up from the floor!

The James Turrell oval exhibit extends inside the rotunda from first floor to the roof oculus of the Guggenheim Museum in New York, and shows how much control Turrell can execute over our perception of light, color, and space. Aten Reign (2013) fills the enormous volume with shifting LED artificial and natural light. Colors change from dark to light and light to dark, and from one color to another, in a random, computer generated sequence. The more nimble of us laid down on the floor of the rotunda to look straight up and experience the changes over time. Like attendance at a Friends Meeting, you are immersed in the quiet power of the moment and speak only in hushed tones when needed. Fantastic! http://www.guggenheim.org/new-york/exhibitions/on-view/james-turrell.

Now imagine the impact of light and color in your own home or office and how it can be improved, and call us to discuss helping you implement the changes.
