James Turrell’s Roden Crater
James Turrell is an American artist known for large scale installations that focus on light and space. Walking into a James Turrell work feels otherworldly, yet familiar. His gallery pieces offer the spirit of a naturally occurring act (a sunrise for example) set inside something that is man made. His outdoor installations also do not disappoint adding a quite layer of illuminated complexity to what is organic to the space. Enter Turrell’s current’s work in progress, Roden Crater.
Roden Crater, is located in the Painted Desert region of Northern Arizona (Flagstaff). It is a mammoth large-scale artwork created within a volcanic cinder cone. This piece is minimally invasive to the external landscape while internally the cinder has been transformed into a series of spaces where the viewer can experience sky-light, solar, and celestial phenomena.
Roden Crater links the physical and the ephemeral, the objective with the subjective, in a transformative sensory experience. Here’s a peek at what he has in store.
