Hmm, fascinating. It sounds interesting. I'm not sure which is worse, good theater with bad lighting or good lighting with bad theater.

Here's an interesting article:<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Empty spaces, light are artist's only tools<P>Steven Litt, Cleveland Plain Dealer<P>Art always involves the transformation of prosaic materials into extraordinary objects and experiences. <P>In the case of contemporary artist James Turrell, the transformation is extreme. Working with little more than colored light and empty space, he creates austere gallery installations that evoke everything from joy to fear, from profound relaxation to near-panic. His room- size environments are like psychedelic experiences, minus the drugs. And while a collection of his pieces would fill an entire museum, his ambitions are even larger.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P><a href=http://www.cleveland.com/artsandevents/plaindealer/index.ssf?/xml/story.ssf/html_standard.xsl?/base/entertainment/1024142193118591.xml target=_blank>More</a>

Light is such an esoteric art form. I haven't trained my eye to see it yet. And color theory mixing light is much different from mixing fabric dye.

Turrell's seems to be something well worth a pilgrimage, although the effect of some of the exhibits might be diminished by having read this article and being forewarned.
