Sky gaz­ing

The Simple Things - - ESCAPE | OUTING -

Os­ten­si­bly just a hole in the roof of a build­ing – old or new, un­der­ground or not – through which to view the heav­ens, Amer­i­can artist James Tur­rell’s Skys­paces are gain­ing trac­tion over here as one of the most med­i­ta­tive and mov­ing forms of out­door sculp­ture there is.

Since cre­at­ing one in a cir­cu­lar dry­s­tone cham­ber in Kielder For­est in 2000, he has now built an­other three; at Houghton Hall in Nor­folk, at the York­shire Sculp­ture Park and, most re­cently, at Corn­wall’s sculp­ture gar­dens, Tre­men­heere, just out­side Pen­zance.
