Fountains were fun to watch – the water shot all over the place, and sometimes, you could stand in the mist blown your way by a helpful breeze.

James Turrell's Art Comes to "Light" in NYC, Houston

The next time you walk into a dark room and flip on the light switch, imagine yourself creating a work of art. James Turrell’s approach isn’t quite so simplistic, but he does find inspiration in the basic function of electric illumination. In a career spanning five decades, he has cast cubes of light into a room, built hallways and rooms of illuminated color, and cultivated fields of shifting light that could disorient you faster than a corn maze in the fall. read more »
