Alchemy: A James Turrell Space
Light, space & location is the media that James Turrell, the artist, works with. A location such as the Guggenheim Museum, requires conceptualized & manufactured spaces or rooms, utilizing artificial & programmed light as a key component in the piece. On the other hand, Turrell's "Skyspaces" uses natural phenomena, the sky, as the prominent presence.
So here too at 26 GPS we witness the result of alchemy when Units 5A&B were combined by Turrell. Of course, the difference is that this is a space to live in; functional & permanent environment. Turrell has designed the 1 BR/2 BT, expansive Great Room apartment with his singular sensibility. As the sky in his "Skyspaces" is the focal point, Gramercy Park with its seasonal change of landscape & ever-shifting light is the heart & focus of the space. The Great Room, incorporating the kitchen, has all 4 windows facing north to the Park. The purchaser, besides owning a James Turrell space has the extra bonus of acquiring a key to the Park.
