"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."

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.
