James Turrell Skyspace Encounter

location:

jardin botanico, culiacan


Skyspace Encounter is an artwork of artist James Turrell that focuses on the perception of light.

The space is conformed by a concave screen, with a central oculus that creates a show of sensations for the user.

The main task was to fabricate the entire skyspace so that the spectator would not be able to appreciate any visible joint that may interfere with the light spectacle projected on the surface.

Digital fabrication schemes were implemented to produce molds off-site, then installed on-site where the fabrication of the fiber glass was done creating as a single uniform surface.
