"For us, the idea of having a work that has contradictions is very important—when, in affirming something, it includes itself and attacks itself. How can you put together all of these things that have nothing to do with each other? You use glue! Glue can be an idea, a word. You can use an ideological glue."

Filmed in early 2013, James Turrell revisits his installation Second Meeting (1989) at the home of private collectors in Los Angeles, California. As one of his first skyspaces, Second Meeting was originally installed at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles in 1986. In the film, Turrell describes what initially attracted him to working with light and how skyspaces encourage a closer examination of our visual perceptions. Second Meeting was preceded by a similar work titled Meeting which has been on public view at MoMA PS1 in Queens, New York since 1986.
