Nobody who has experienced an installation by James Turrell forgets the encounter--he makes light tangible in ways that boggle perception and almost seem to defy physics, as if you could reach into the space you see when you close your eyes. A lifelong explorer of perceptual psychology, Turrell is undoubtedly the most influential contemporary light artist, as well as one of America's most popular artists. In Geometry of Light, the first significant Turrell survey in many years, an extraordinary body of work covering several decades is assessed. At the book's center is the series of works known as Sky Spaces, a signature Turrell conception in which the sky is made to seem "on top of" the room's ceiling, and which has become a mini-genre unto itself within light art. Academic, philosophical and art-historical essays explicate these perceptual spaces, whose evolution is closely allied to Turrell's development of the Roden Crater Project in the Arizona desert, where he began constructing an observatory in 1974. Also included is the latest installation, "Skyspace/Camera Obscura Space," which Turrell conceived for the Zentrum fur Internationale Lichtkunst in Unna, Germany. As an undergraduate, James Turrell(born in Los Angeles, 1943) studied psychology and mathematics, transitioning to art only at MFA level. A practicing Quaker, one of his earliest memories is of his grandmother inviting him to "go inside and greet the light" at Quaker meetings. The recipient of several prestigious awards such as Guggenheim and MacArthur Fellowships, Turrell lives in Arizona.

Published in conjunction with the artist's major retrospective exhibition, this comprehensive volume traces James Turrell's artistic practice from his years at the Mendota studio in Santa Monica, California, to his monumental work-in-progress at Roden Crater, an extinct volcano that he has been transforming into a naked-eye observatory since 1975. Whether he's projecting three-dimensional shapes into the corner of a gallery space or creating immersive environments that allow viewers to better understand their own perception, Turrell invites us to "go inside and greet the light", evoking the meditative practices of his Quaker upbringing. A critical figure emerging from Los Angeles's exploding art scene of the 1960s, Turrell draws from aviation, psychology, and astronomy in his art. Through ten chapters that survey his various bodies of work, enhanced by thoughtful essays and an illuminating interview with the artist, this monograph explores every aspect of Turrell's oeuvre to date-from his early geometric projections, prints, and drawings, through his installations exploring sensory deprivation and seemingly unmodulated fields of colored light, to recent holographie works. It also features an in-depth look at the Roden Crater Project through models, plans, photographs, and drawings, which reveal the power and beauty of his magnum opus and its surrounding landscape. This publication also features extraordinary images by Florian Holzherr-many of which were specially commissioned and are published here for the first time.
