The luminaria are designed by company founder, Alan Parkinson, who started experimenting with pneumatic sculptures in the I980s. They are made of a plastic produced uniquely for Architects of Air. Only four colours of plastic are used to generate a great diversity of subtle hues.
To say that James Turrell is having a big retrospective is an understatement. This summer, three of the nation’s top museums are collaborating to give the revered, 70-year-old master of monumental installation art, a cross-country, career-capping moment. The three separate shows kick off May 26 at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and continue at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston (June 9) and the Guggenheim Museum in New York (June 21).
