We ventured beyond the office today to experience the wonderful James Turrell retrospective at LACMA. From the aquatint prints of floating objects to the light projections, holograms, and the Ganzfeld room, we were in awe of the incredible ways he used light and space to create his work. The exhibit will run through April 6th, and if you haven’t already experienced it, we definitely encourage you to go see it.
