James Turrell: The Wolfsburg Project

James Turrell: The Wolfsburg Project: by Richard Andrews, Marcus Bruderlin, Esther Barbara, Annelie Lutgens, and James Turrell. Published by Hatje Cantz, Germany, 2010.

            Since the 1960’s, Turrell has been working with the optics and various manifestations of light. In one of his more recent and larger projects, the Wolfsburg Project, put on by the Kunstmuseum in Germany, Turrell once again focuses on the way light can transform a viewer’s perspective. This immense piece focuses on the “tangibility” of light the idea being that light and space can provide an individual with the means for self reflection. In this book the authors explore the construction and meaning of this extraordinary venture into the workings of light and space.
