Floating in Skyspace

Friday, July 31, 2009

We are flying forms floating in the air as the spaces around us gradually fill with light.  Are we closer to the sky or is the sky closer to us?  Frozen in the present, we are reconnected to the world around us.  This is our sixth skyspace experience.  This elliptical one at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art is not only bright but hot.  James Turrell sums it up nicely: “We are dwellers at the bottom of the ocean of air. We create the color and shape of the sky. It does not exist outside the self.”
