James Turrell's newest installation of his series of Sky Spaces has opened at ASU, and it is pretty amazing. At first I was a little put off by the colored LED show that it puts on, preferring instead the simple and secluded purity of his SMOCA Sky Space, but after a few outing I have really come to like this one. The changing colors cause your eyes to see the sky in the void and around the edge as an inverse of the LED color: Purple and Green, Blue and Yellow, even White and Black. It's pretty intense at times, almost unbelievably. You can kind of tell the difference in these pictures, but you really have to go and experience it for the full effect. Hats off to everyone involved.
