Observing Turrell’s skyspace
Observing Turrell’s skyspace at PS1. James Turrell “Meeting” skyspace at PS1 Museum in Long Island City, NY. 4-5 PM, Monday, November 23, 2009. A very faint rain fell for most of the hour. The sun set at 4:32 PM. We report nearly twenty observations recorded by the students of my “Experiments in Beauty” undergraduate psychology class at NYU. This is a one-page epilog to my 2005 chapter “What is observation” on taking students to observe Turrell’s piece. “Skyspace” is a 2006 NPR Studio 360 radio interview of me about this by Kurt Andersen, produced by Laura Starecheski.
