A limited edition of these breathtakingly beautiful publications were printed in 2001. They are slipcase bound, printed on archival paper, and feature 14 individual color plates which would be suitable for framing. The color and materials used to create this volume reflect the texture and palette of Roden Crater, Turrell's long-term project converting an extinct volcano into an observatory. Iconic symbols related to the crater's underground chambers are embossed and die-cut into the folios of each section.
In James Turrell’s hands, light is more than simply a source of illumination: it is a discrete, physical object. His sculptures and architectural interventions elevate our experience and perception of light and space. MASS MoCA presents a multi-decade retrospective of Turrell’s work in B6: The Robert W. Wilson Building — with galleries designed and constructed specially to best accentuate his installations. MASS MoCA's exhibition features a major work from each decade of the artist’s career.
