I visited the de Young last week and got to rediscover this gem that’s free to the public in the far corner of the sculpture garden: James Turrell’s “Three Gems.” If you haven’t visited yet, I don’t want to spoil the surprise of what you’ll find inside, so this is just a shot of the entrance.
I will say that James Turrell’s stated medium is light. And that he’s just a wee bit good at it.
However, if you’re unable to visit the de Young and want to go ahead and see the thing, I think this video will give you a decent idea, though sadly it does not have the amazing sense of calm his work gives you.
Here’s to finding an amazing sense of calm, and whatever it takes to get you there!
