Turrell1Turrell10

“Roden crater” is the culmination of artist James Turrell’s lifelong obsession with the contours of light and space. Located in an extinct volcano in the Arizona desert, Turrell’s large-scale project involves a series of specially engineered caverns, tunnels and apertures, all working to allow Turrell’s true medium (light) to shine through.
