The National Gallery of Australia has unveiled Within without, a monumental 'Skyspace' installation by James Turrell who is best known for his ambitious work-in-progress the Rodin Crater, a naked-eye observatory located in a dormant volcano in the Painted Desert of northern Arizona. The only work of its kind in Australia, the partly subterranean installation creates an immersive viewing experience that uses space, shape and light to affect perception of the sky.
