the light inside

James Turrell’s site-specific installation at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The Light Inside, connects the museum’s two main buildings in a trippy tunnel of light that will keep you off-balance. Best known for Roden Crater, a massive earthworks work-in-progress outside Flagstaff, Arizona that’s being turned into a naked eye observatory, Turrell’s work plays with our perceptions of light and space, creating fascinating illusions of mass and weight where none exist. Is it any wonder he got his college degree in perceptual psychology?
