This work is a Cross-Corner Projection piece, part of a series of some of the earliest light works that Turrell made. This work uses a projector to create light in a shape that seems to have weight and mass. Notice that the shape in this work - a tetrahedron - is similar to James Turrell is one of the most celebrated American artists working today. Born in California in 1943, he grew up with an enduring love of aviation and the sky, as well as a fascination with light. His Quaker background also substantially formed his approach to life and art, with its emphasis on silent access to the "light within." From age six, Turrell was urged by his grandmother to "go inside and greet the light" at Quaker meetings. In the early 1960's, Turrell studied perceptual psychology at Pomona College, taking additional classes in other scientific disciplines, such as mathematics, geology and astronomy.
