Always look at the back of projects. This is a Turrell problem, he works so hard to have you NOT look at the back but I found myself marveling at how well made the scrim was, how nicely the geometry fit into the Frank Lloyd Wright’s building. And finally, don’t judge immediately, think about what you see-now I know this work will be with me for years to come.
