Celestial vault

Posted by

In the dunes of The Hague, where light can have such a tangible presence, the american artist James Turrell created a place to gaze at the sky: ‘Celestial Vault' in Kijkduin (one of the cities sea resorts). At the top of one of the rubble dunes, a bowl in the shape of an ellipse has been built, 30 meters wide and 40 meters long.

Photography has done at least as much to deaden conscience as to arouse it.
- Susan Sontag, in 'On Photography' (1977)
