( of course, without the music part in the day time) designed by CODA Caroline O’Donnell, Ithaca […]

 the site specific exhibition by james turrell at guggenheim museum is absolutely something you don’t want to miss this summer! the exhibition includes the Aten Reign at the core of the rotunda, and some of his early works include my favorite “Afrum” – the way light designed create a perception of floating, glowing cube in the corner, and the at least an hour wait-line for “iltar (1976)”, a dark room with a gray rectangle on the wall that intentionally […]
