Format: Hardcover
This book is a must read for anyone interested in how light can affect space as well as human sensorial experiences. Turrel is a magnificent light artist whose works defy rational conceptions of how space can be represented. The works of art explained in this compilation test our ability to use our senses in a non-Cartesian thought process.
