James Turrell is a light installation artist who uses projection and light sources to alter spaces and human perception. Colour is a property of light and Turrell has used strong colours in his installation pieces to define form and create bold imagery. Turrell describes his work as ephemeral and sensory, relying on our subjective perceptions to provide viewers with unique experiences of his pieces.

More recently he has begun to explore the concept of time and space and created a bunker in the desert where visitors can immerse themselves in his work.
