»My work is about space and the light that inhabits it. It is about how you can confront that space and plumb it. It is about your seeing, like the wordless thought that comes from looking into a fire.«
The internationally acclaimed light artist James Turrell created a light installation especially for the Dornier Museum. he has been fascinated with flying since childhood and cites the special quality of light above the clouds as one of the major inspirations for his work, which he sees as a meditative reflection on our place in the universe. Turrell's installations transport viewers into a realm of pure imagination and sensory experience. Turrell restores vintage planes in his free time and is currently refurbishing a DO 27.
