James Turrell’s Perceptual CellLight Reignfall is a work from James Turrell’s Perceptual Cells series; it is a freestanding enclosed structure that provides an experience for one viewer at a time. Assisted by an attendant, an individual viewer enters a spherical chamber on a sliding bed. A program of saturated light (operated by a technician) surrounds the viewer for twelve minutes, allowing the visitor to experience the intense, multidimensional power of light and the complex seeing instrument of the human eye.
