Field of Light Uluru

Vision Magazine - - Destinations -

In 1992 Bri­tish artist Bruce Munro vis­ited Uluru and was so en­thralled by the iconic red desert colours of the Aus­tralian land­scape that he con­ceived the idea for the Field of Light – an art in­stal­la­tion com­prised of thou­sands of lu­mi­nous bulbs at­tached to stems and chang­ing in colour, much like a field of in­can­des­cent flow­ers pul­sat­ing within the heart of the night. Munro ex­plains: “I saw in my mind a land­scape of il­lu­mi­nated stems that, like the dor­mant seed in a dry desert, qui­etly wait un­til dark­ness falls, un­der a blaz­ing blan­ket of south­ern stars, to bloom with gen­tle rhythms of light,” he adds, “Field of Light is a per­sonal sym­bol for the good things in life.”
