within without

Ro and I will be heading down to Canberra for New Years to celebrate with my family.  There are a few things I enjoy doing when i'm down there, and one of my favourites is visiting the National Gallery of Australia. A friend recommended we check out James Turrell's Within Without, a complex skyscape viewing chamber which affects the way we perceive the sky. 
Viewing is recommended at either dawn or dusk to witness the light at its most dramatic. "In asking us to take the time to notice these subtleties, Turrell reveals the immensity of the natural world and the beauty of celestial architecture."

Have a look at the video from ABC's Art Nation show or find out more here.
