James Turrell Interview06/04/10
¨We generate light at night in the cities to offset our fear of each other, but lighting the night sky cuts off access to the universe. And the territory we inhabit is a visual territory. There are certainly aural aspects to it, I’ll grant that, but if you cut off access to the universe, you don’t live in it. It’s a psychological change to do that, to light the sky and cut off access to the stars.¨
