|fair question. I dont have any trouble w/ serra right up till the end, where he seems to back off from a career trajectory w/ a reflexive reversal that to me seems to pander to unvalid critisim. if it wasnt for the big crater project i dont think turrell would even be on the map. nice big and sublime nature/art experience. but wiring mood rooms for light and sound shows gives me serious doubt that he has anything on the ball at all. just me 2 cents/ like you say one dont mind being waltzed around if you think they know what their doing.
I bring up Turrell because Sally's post made me think more about how I react to Turrell than Serra. while I really like some of his work like crater, I find the "mood rooms" manipulative and actually somewhat insulting (PS1 room excluded, but there is nothing "artificially" manipulating me there).
