A skyspace is an architectural design in which a room, which is painted in a neutral color has a large hole in its ceiling which opens directly to the sky. The room, whose perimeter has benches, allows observers to look at the sky in such a way as though it were framed. LED lights which surround the hole can change colors to affect the viewer's perception of the sky.
The design is the work of American artist James Turrell. As of 2013 over 82 skypaces have been installed worldwide. This is the one in the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Wakefield.

The sign at the entrance said there may be queues for this exhibit! Had the place to myself and had great fun working different angles.

Iso 200, f13, 1/160 (for both images). No tripod again (left it in the car).

Two most attractive examples of blue-sky thinking. It's a couple of years since we last visited the YSP and you're doing a grand job of tempting us back there.
My tripod stays in the car boot when we're on holiday; otherwise it lives in the spare room. It does get used sometimes, though, honest!

Shows the artist's concept really well, it needed the broken blue sky to contrast the walls in a photo. The patch of sunlight really completes the relationship between the room and the sky. Actually feels a bit prison-like to me; you can see the sky but you can't escape!
