James Turrell is an artist from California whose installation work controls viewers’ perception of light and space. His artwork House of Light, setted in a house is located on the outskirts of the Tokamachi, operates according to similar principles: there is a square hole in the ceiling covered only by a mechanical sliding roof, which you are invited to open at sunset and sunrise.

Turrel's inspiration for his ascetic, colourful and very private works is drawn from his studies in psychology and mathematics. An enlightening moment in his life occurred in his undergraduate art history class at Pomona College whilst watching a slide projector in the darkened room.  He started an inquiry in which light is not a tool to enable vision but an element to look at.
