Visualizing intangible forms with technology

Lately, I was down in LA where I got the chance to experience James Turrell's Breathing Light exhibit and get my aura photo taken by Radiant Human. In retrospect, I thought it was interesting how both of these explorations showed people a way to experience and see a metaphysical space through the use of technology.

In these works I find the pairing of technology and the abstract both juxtaposed and surprisingly analogous at the same time.

A quote I liked from James Turrell:

"My work is more about your seeing than it is about my seeing, although it is a product of my seeing.”

Including a link to Artsy as well - a great place to check out for art lovers.
