Inside Out, A New Sculpture by Artist Richard Serra | Arts Initiative Columbia University - This piece is very interactive and it could be easy to miss some of it.  Serra creates space by having varying amounts of negative space in different areas.  Some parts of the 'maze' are narrow and claustrophobic.  Others are spacious and inviting.

James Turrell creates space by using light and color in this piece.  The addition of the yellow light, especially how part of it is dragged towards the viewer, creates a feeling that it is farther away than it may really be.  If it were kept just blue, there would be a lack of depth.
