James Turrell (born May 6, 1943) is an American artist
primarily concerned with light and space. In the 1970s,
Turrell began his series of Skyspaces - enclosed spaces open to the
sky through an aperture in the roof.
A Skyspace is an enclosed room large enough
for roughly 15 people. Inside, the viewers sit on benches along the
edge to view the sky through an opening in the roof and a wonderful
play of light inside the Skyspace.
The Skyspace is located in the village Øystese by the
Hardangerfjord, next to The
Art Centre Kabuso and Ingebrigt Vik
