Inside James Turrell’s Roden Crater

It is Turrell’s most ambitious project, but also his most personal. He has spent 45 years designing a series of tunnels and chambers inside to capture celestial light. Yet Turrell has rarely allowed anyone to visit the work in progress. Known as Roden Crater, it stands 580 feet tall and nearly two miles wide.

James Turrell Shuts Down Skyspace At MoMA PS1 Until Condo Construction Across Street Is Done

So the museum has agreed to his request to close the installation until the scaffolding is no longer visible. — Hyperallergic
