Cat Cairn: the Kielder Skyspace - James Turrell 2000

Kielder
Northumberland
NE48 1ER

+44 01434 220616

A sculptural artwork on Cat Cairn, a rocky outcrop overlooking Kielder Water and Forest Park. Visitors to the Skyspace will find themselves in a circular room where the artist manipulates our normal perceptions of light and space. In daylight hours, this chamber; illuminated only by natural light through the roof opening, is a contemplative space that focuses the visitor's attention on the sky. During the changing light conditions at dusk and dawn, the lighting system becomes active and visitors can expect to experience a rich unforgettable display of tone and colour. "My work is not so much about my seeing as about your seeing. There is no one between you and your experience". James Turrell
