Roden Crater - James Turrell

We just learned about the Circles of Time by Alan Sonfist.

Another famous work of land art is Roden Crater - James Turrell.

This crater is from the inside of an old volcano that doesn't work anymore.
In 1979 James Turrell bought the land where the volcano is in Arizona.

After he bought the land, he built tunnels under the ground to walk through, with rooms that open up to see the sun, moon or stars in special ways without a telescope.
