End Around

James Turrell: End Around  [1]

‘For End Around, Turrell transformed the main gallery of the museum into a Ganzfeld, the term refers to an undifferentiated and evenly illuminated space first described in perceptual psychology. In a Ganzfeld, depth, surface detail, and color variation are suppressed and in their place one sees a thick, all-encompassing mist of light. End Around is an immersive “sensing space,” an intense experience of a field of light, in which light, so often thought of as the illumination that reveals objects, becomes instead an object of weight and mass.‘ [2]
