James Turrell: Second Meeting

Filmed in early 2013, this film from Art21's Exclusive series shows James Turrell revisiting his installation Second Meeting (1989) at the home of private collectors. James Turrell's explorations in light and space impact the eye, body, and mind with the force of a spiritual awakening. Informed by his studies in perceptual psychology and optical illusions, Turrell's work allows us to see ourselves seeing.
