Tag: Luminous Caves

On the outskirts of Santa Fe, New Mexico, Ra Paulette's Luminous Caves lie hidden within a rocky sandstone mesa that appears untouched from the outside. Within it, Paulette's labyrinthine, sculptural land art evokes Gaudi's architecture with its high ceilings and organic, spiraling embellishments. Dug singlehandedly by the artist, the caves were envisioned as a place of spiritual reflection and community gathering for Santa Fe area's rural communities as well as visitors. Paulette created the multi-purpose space over the course of 10 years, describing his process as an organic dance with the land. Within the awe-inspiring architecture of Luminous Caves, Paulette says he hopes to inspire his viewers to connect with the spiritual side of nature.
