From the article published on designboom.com

“last december, villa panza celebrated the ingenuity of renowned american artists robert irwin and james turrell with an exhibition entitled ‘aisthesis – the origin of sensations‘. a total of 19 works — encompassing projections, installations and sensory environments — have been integrated into the spaces of the italian villa-turned-gallery-space. two new works created by irwin and turrell had been sited specifically for the exhibition: turrell’s ganzfeld ‘sight unseen’ and irwin’s ‘varese scrim’. ‘sight unseen’ has seen the gallery’s main stable block transform into an emotive, endless landscape, whereas ‘varese scrim’ creates an immersive labyrinth shaped by natural light.”
