Short biography: James Turrell
-The observer is enveloped by coloured light. This one, controls the observer’s emotions and is manipulated in such a way that its colour intensity is exaggerated.

-The contrasting colours such as pink and blue are shown one after another, they appear more intense than they truly are. Turrell uses in rotation colours inside of Bridget’s Bardo.

-The exaggeration of colour intensity is significant, as it strengthens the light’s control over the subject’s emotions.Certain colours correspond to certain emotions. In Bridget’s Bardo, Turrell’s use of coloured light triggers unsettling, intense responses to an element that is harmless


BRIDGET’S BARDO BY JAMES TURRELL
-Symmetrical composition

-Works in perspective

-Shape: geometric line

-Here it's perpendicular and vertical line

-Real space because three-dimensional and he creates feeling and emotion

- Use primary colours and secondary colours:
Here:
Red→ it's a warm and positive color associated with our most physical needs
Blue→ it's a trust, responsibility, honesty and loyalty
Pink→ it's a delicate color that means sweet and nice


BROUILLON
- He creates works with natural or artificial light.

- It's a room full of colored light.

- His work produces a discrepancy between the visual and intellectual perception of space.

- He solicits the senses of the spectators.

- He prevents a passive perception to lead the viewer to transcend oneself.

- His favorite game is to saturate the space with so much color that the rooms and walls blend under the light.

-To create a new world, combining art, science and psychology.

- Sculpting the color and the shadows, analyzing their impact on our relationship with physical reality
