A temple-like "Skyspace" is being created at the prominent site at the high point in the valley, entered from the base of the hill through an underground corridor. One is led along a rising passageway to an interior space, an elliptical chamber whose ceiling frames the sky.  Discrete background illumination will under light the ceiling of the space and provides a telling contrast with the sky. The shifting balance between the interior and exterior light will provide a contemplative and hypnotic transition. The current space is quietly inspirational but is a work in progress with completion planned for 2014. An opportunity to see an internationally important installation evolve.
