Artist James Turrell’s Monumental Light Installation Set Inside Extinct Volcano

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.
