James Turrell: lighting a planet
James Turrell works with phenomena of light like no other artist. Since the 1960s he has been building astonishing spaces that allow light to be experienced both in its material and its spiritual qualities. In recent years Turrell has developed an increasing interest in the staging of architecture through the use of light. He has realized several landmark works with this in mind--his light installation for the opening of the Kunsthaus Bregenz, his light design for an administrative building in Leipzig, and the light events on the Pont du Gard, a Roman bridge in Southern France. James Turrell: Lighting a Planetdocuments his all-inclusive staging of Planet m, including numerous photographs, sketches, interviews, comparative illustrations and an enlightening essay. Planet mis the Bertelsmann pavilion, the secret landmark of the EXPO 2000 at Hanover, which takes on a nocturnal second life through Turrell's ever-shifting atmospheres of light.
