Framing Light and Space – Analyzing the Work of James Turrell

6 02 2008

 

James Turrell expresses ‘experience’ by allowing the viewer to experience light. Since light is so familiar to us, we no longer see it. This artist, helps us see it once again. He uses different techniques, one of which is framing:

He also used sculptured light.

To bring focus unto something we no longer see, he controlled, shaped and crafted the environment and therefore the viewer’s experience. He allows us to see something that was always there, but failed to see. This experience can only be achieved with digital art, through research into how the senses perceive light, sound, space and time.
