Ganzfeld "Aural" - An Installation by James Turrell

Jüdisches Museum Berlin | Berlin
Price
€3 - €8
Presentation
In a temporary structure in the museum garden, the museum is presenting the immersive installation Ganzfeld “Aural” by the artist James Turrell.

“Aural” is the Berlin premiere of a Ganzfeld by the world’s foremost light sculptor. The installation is part of the Ganzfeld Pieces series, in which Turrell creates liminal zones of experience.

The Installation
Upon entering the Ganzfeld “Aural” installation, visitors are immersed in a space that reveals neither its light source nor its dimensions. Their eyes lose their frame of reference; their gaze is unleashed. Light, color, and space melt together. The installation’s gradual color shifts are punctuated by flashes of light.

James Turell demands time from his visitors. Our eyes must first adjust before the light’s effect fully unfolds.

Suddenly, we perceive the slightest stimuli and changes. This leads to dreamlike experiences reminiscent of thick fog, expanses of snow, or the dark of night.

Symbolism of light
Light is a central symbol in Judaism linking the beginning and end of creation. James Turrell’s works can be seen as one of the most spectacular artistic interpretations of the creation of light.
