Air mass

London: South Bank Centre, 1993. 61 plates (44 color). 119 + [2] pp.Gray boards with debossed cover title and spine printed in dark-red, dustjacket in color and black. 25 x 37 cm (oversquare). A stunning and thought-provoking book by one of the world's most profound living artists. Turrell writes mostly in the first person. The first half is on light and night, on flight, on weather (air masses); the rest is primarily images of the Roden Crater in Arizona's Painted Desert. "The work I do intensifies the experience of light by isolating it and occluding and occluding light from events not looked at." The crater contains a large number of internal spaces. "Each space essentially looks to a different portion of sky and accepts a limited number of events." The image on the dustjacket is an aerial view looking vertically at the unaltered Roden Crater. Very fine. Item #32601
