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.

James Turrell's Skyspace, Within Without is site-specific, its location chosen by the artist to complement and accord with the Australian Garden on the southern perimeter of the grounds of the National Gallery of Australia. Because the structure is partly subterranean, only a small part of the stupa is visible from outside. Not only does this establish the sculpture as an integral part of the landscape, its placement also muffles extraneous sounds and reduces light pollution. This publication includes images of the Skyspace from both inside and out, a series of the light-cycle and a visual development of the five and a half year construction process.

"More Americans visit art museums annually than attend all major-league sporting events. Yet many come away dissatisfied, because art rarely yields itself to the few seconds most viewers spend on individual works. In a culture of distraction, Slow Art models ways to extend and enrich acts of looking. This study defines a new aesthetic field crossing centuries and mediums, including video, photography, land and installation art, painting, performance, sculpture, and fiction. Also tableaux vivants ("living pictures"), live restagings of artworks. Often dismissed as marginal, the practice is fundamental--poised between motion and stasis, life and art--witness its current flourishing. This history of looking includes Diderot, Emma Hamilton, Oscar Wilde, Jeff Wall, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Andy Warhol, Richard Serra. But rather than a set of objects, slow art names a dynamic relationship that transpires between objects and observers. Slow art enacts tacit contracts between works that have designs on us and beholders who invest in them. Slow art emerged in the 18th century, when cultural acceleration created the need to cushion the pace of social life. Simultaneously, however, secularization closed off traditional means to do so. Slow art offers secular viewers pleasures and consolations that engaging sacred images did in ages of faith. Slow art offers objects their due attention, and offers observers meaningful encounters. Such experiences are available to everybody by practicing the pleasures of lingering. Because such opportunities are not given, Slow Art proposes strategies for artists, artworks, and beholders"--Provided by publisher.
