Saw this Retrospective when I was in Los Angeles over the weekend at LACMA. It was so inspiring to see an artist work his entire life on the subject of light and space and color. Simple and yet the most obvious things are sometimes the most complex.
“A Skyspace is an architectural walk-in sculpture, open to the sky, with programmed interior lights that interact with the natural colour of the sky, at sunrise and sunset. During the transition from twilght to full night, lighting elements, programmed to change in intensity and hue, illuminate the inside walls of the Skyspace, creating a changing perception of sky as space, form, object, and void. A similar happening occurs during sunrise.”
