Suzanne Deal Booth Centennial Pavilion

“ …the new trompe l’oeil…light as the bearer “

This Skyspace was created by world renowned artist James Turrell, and is located on the Rice University campus in Houston. As an alumna of Rice Suzanne was inspired to bring a unique artwork to the campus that would be a part of the everyday life of the student. Suzanne believes that art should not be put on a pedestal but be a part of the fabric of life – inspiring us and changing our perceptions. She worked as Turrell’s assistant on the first Skyspace he created at PS1 in Queens and has been an admirer of his work for many years. In this work the combination of natural and slowly shifting artifical light tricks the eye of the viewer into a new awareness of light and perception.
