Skyspace by James Turrell opened in Hardanger

A new art installation opened in Øystese on 23 September 2016: 
A Skyspace by the acknowledged artist James Turrell!

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.
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 Museum
