This unique, limited edition, case-bound publication, printed on archival paper, and with 14 individual color plates suitable for framing, provides an overview of both of these projects as well as Turrell's room-size light works in which forms seem to float in air and spaces gradually fill with mysterious light. The color and materials used to fabricate James Turrell: Infinite Light reflect the natural texture and palette of Roden Crater, and iconic symbols related to the crater's underground chambers are embossed and die-cut into the folios of each section.
Published on the occasion of the 2001 exhibition at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art.
Since the early 1960s, James Turrell has used light and space as his primary mediums. His site-specific artworks, from the ambitious and on-going "Roden Crater," a natural cinder volcano situated in the Arizona desert which Turrell is transforming into a naked-eye observatory, to his "Skyspace" series, make manifest the physical presence of light and heighten the viewer's visual perception.
