Installation: Field of Light

"Field of Light" by Bruce Munro

Part of Holbourne Museum’s winter experience which consists of over 5,000 bulbs of light, threaded with fibre optic cables and planted in the grounds of the museum in Bath, England. Acrylic stems are topped by frosted spheres which are threaded with fibre optic cables and lit by a colour projector. The result is quite magical, as both colour and light flow through the bulbs to create a uniquely captivating experience.

The idea for the installation came to Munro nearly twenty years ago, while he was on walkabout in Australia when he saw the barren desert blossom after the rain. Like the desert, Field of Light lies dormant in the day, but after the darkness falls, the bulbs flower with gentle rhythms of light and patterns of color.
