Roden Crater, located in the Painted Desert region of the Northern Arizona, is an unprecedented, large-scale artwork created within a volcanic cinder cone by light and space artist James Turrell. Representing the culmination of the artist’s lifelong research in the field of human visual and psychological perception, Roden Crater is a controlled environment for the experiencing and contemplation of light. While minimally invasive to the external natural landscape, internally the red and black cinder has been transformed into special, engineered spaces where the cycles of geologic and celestial time can be directly experienced.
