в поисках света:

Light is one of the most fundamental and essential elements in art. As such, James Turrell uses it as the sole subject for large-scale installations <...>. He makes the architectural spaces seem grand as well as intimately scaled by using the interior structure to shape the light.


The impressive work entitled Spread, a 4000-square foot environment, encompasses visitors with coloured light fields that feel infinite. An element of pure, Zen-like respect is introduced when visitors are required to remove their shoes before entering. The overall experience is humbling. Turrell terms these works the Ganzfeld pieces, named for the optical phenomenon where there is nothing for the eye to focus on. In these works, the light is so convincing that the space becomes a glowing abyss, much as if viewers were enclosed within Colour Field paintings.
