james turrell: stone sky

Commissioned in 2001 and completed in 2007, Stone Sky, 2005 includes a pavilion and an infinity pool that stretches out toward the valley floor and the volcanic pinnacles beyond. Turrell’s installation within the open pavilion brings a square of sky through an overhead plane. By swimming underwater at the end of the pool, one surfaces within a cube-like Skyspace, whose interior is finished in teak.
