Clever, kind Turrell guidance at the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh.

James Turrell is the rare contemporary artist whose work you actually HAVE to see in person. It does not really exist outside the physical experience of it. Seeing Turrell installations (or whatever you call them) is for me at least actually transformative. You become aware that light is literally a thing, that your body changes the world merely by looking at it, and that paying attention to the barely visible can be utterly engrossing.You can’t really describe this stuff without sounding like a total cheeseball, but it is still real. Anyway, go see Turrell’s stuff whenever you get the chance.
