Ronde was created at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art as part of a Performance Lab Residency. This film was devised specifically for the Skyspace — a James Turrell designed enclosure that serves as the installation space for his piece The Way of Color. Captured in a continuous take, it was shot during the dawn and dusk light experience of Turrell’s piece, as well as midday sun.
