Ok, so after seeing the James Turrell, Skyspace, Twilight Epiphany at Rice University last weekend, that has lights at night, the temptation was too great...we had to see it for ourselves. I have to say that I was a little bummed as there was no accompanying music, but it was pretty zen and cool to view. My son soon discovered, it was more pretty to see from outside of it! No pets allowed inside, but next time since now we know what we're doing we could take Max outside to see it! There is also a Shepherd School of Music there that performs free and we met a lovely gentleman named Enoch that showed us around and was there for religious studies before he'll head back to Nigeria where he is from. He was also kind enough to show us this pretty piece by Jaume Plensa, Mirror but I thought it was really odd that this morning I was catching up on my blog reading and What Remains Now has posted another piece very similar by the same Artist! Weird!
|My son took this pix by actually laying in the floor of the Skyspace and looking up, the blue is the actual sky!|
|That same fountain from yesterday's post with the pretty lights now :)|
|I think my son was right...very nice from the outside and all of these are his shots|
|A nearby building with cool light on top too! Kinda a trippy night :)|
