Shards of Color
This mixed media installation by James Turrell is visible from multiple points on the upper and lower levels of the property. James Turrell is an internationally acclaimed light and space artist whose works play with perception and the effect of light within a created space. With the commission for The Shops at Crystals, Turrell responded to the unique architecture of the space to create artworks that can be experienced from multiple vantage points; whether seen from afar as subtly changing planes of color or from immersed within an area flooded with light. He believes human perception to be his true medium; in his words, "My art is about your seeing".
