Immersive Environments

leave a comment »

James Turrell’s work in my opinion, is very simple in inception, yet very sophisticated in its implementation. His work I think deals with the very central issues regarding art today, specifically perception (in a world drowning in images) and authenticity of feeling (all the conceptual art and technology). He makes his art however with technology- the light projections require precise measurements of light, specifically designed to open the retina so that the viewer perceives color that slowly changes. The effect is immediate: retinal perception affects the human physiology and triggers neural associations with particular emotions that are akin to awe, a sense of abandonment, freedom, confusion, displacement.
