Letting in the light: ASU, artist James Turrell partner on masterwork in the desert

One of the most important large-scale artworks in the world sits in the desert of northern Arizona, where artist James Turrell has spent decades shaping the landscape into an immersive observatory. His creation, Roden Crater, is a masterwork of light and perception inside a dormant volcano, now only seen by a few hundred people every year. A new and innovative partnership between Turrell and Arizona State University will help complete the artist’s magnum opus on the edge of the Painted Desert, making it accessible to many more people and developing an academic component for Turrell to share his artistic vision and inspire transdisciplinary approaches to creativity.

Journey of the Universe: A Story for our Times (February 11-16, 2019)

Lectures by Mary Evelyn Tucker
Seoul, Korea and PyeongChang Forum in Gangwon Province, Korea

The Journey of the Universe film and book, written by Brian Thomas Swimme and Mary Evelyn Tucker, invite us to reflect on our role and responsibility to the flourishing of communities within evolutionary cosmology. How can the life of ecosystems and species be enhanced by humans, not irrevocably damaged? The Journey Conversations explore in what ways humans can contribute to the “great work” of building sustainable cities, resilient food systems, ecological economies, and alternative energies. As planetary citizens we are asking: How can our creativity be aligned with Earth’s creativity.
