James Turrell’s Roden Crater Naked-Eye Observatory

 


Back in 1979, American spatial artist James Turrell acquired the extinct volcano of Roden Crater in Flagstaff, Arizona. In the ensuing years, Turrell has created a unique space where one can absorb and appreciate the ethereal elements. This space, yet to open to the public, is Turrell’s attempt at ‘land art’ while mimicking the practices of both artists and ancients in the shared curiosity of celestial events. The space consists of concurrent tunnels, portals and chambers, all in which to view specific celestial events throughout the year. When completed, this structure, hidden within the natural shape of Roden Crater, will serve as an expansive observatory for everyone to enjoy. The edifice will enable those with curious minds to better understand and to actually perceive such events as solstices, eclipses, and even the odd meteor shower. To learn more about the Roden Crater, and to lend Turrell a hand in kicking it off, visit their site here.
