The Art of Seeing Depression


James Turrell is one of the most remarkable artists alive. He has an amazing understanding of light and perception. By using darkness and almost imperceptible light, his artwork totally changes the way we see the world.

    So the notion that looking at and thinking about a depressive episode only makes things worse is worse than wrong. The idea that you can look at it and learn from it is such a relief. I had felt self indulgent when looking at what I was feeling. And I learned many things about me. Not the least of which “I am not a nice person.” As much as I want to ascribe the best possible motives they are not always true.
    Thanks so much! I love and appreciate your honesty.

    It is an artistic article. I enjoyed reading it, and certainly explains accurately one beautiful side of depression. “I die daily”
