  • The maximum number is 5 persons for each guided tour. 
  • Keep a safe distance to everyone. 

Thank you!

 

Every sunday, all through the year we offer guided tours for Ganzfeld: Double Vision and Skyspace: the Color Beneath. You will experience Ganzfeld: Double Vision and also enter Skyspace: the Color Beneath where the guide tells you about the artwork. Skyspace can only be fully experienced during a sunset or a sunrise, called Sunset/Sunrise Sessions (see bottom of page). The guided tours are free of charge with a drop-in system. See the hours below:

About James Turrell

Sunrise / Sunset Sessions

 

The coloured light in Skyspace can only be experienced fully at sunrise and sunset and by booking a private guided tour. The artwork is a specially designed room with an opening in the ceiling, directly to the sky. The light in the installation changes color during the session in order to influence the viewer's perception of their surroundings.
