Dorotheenstadt Cemetery Memorial Chapel

In late 2016, James Turrell took this chapel in Berlin over with one of his signature light instillations.  This project of his was an immersive light show timed with sunset every day with hidden LED lights with deep blue lights as the sun set and changed color every two minutes from a pre-programmed pattern, from blue to magenta.  Turrell wanted to connect the natural world with the spiritual world which was why he did this.  As the fading sunlight filtered through the opaque windows, it would be amber when it was lit blue and green when it was magenta.  I really like the idea and concept behind this because I think it makes chapel look really cool and really stand out more.
