One of Lighting designer Bruce Munro’s most iconic illuminated sculptures – Field of Light, which will be presented his installation at the Eden Project in Cornwall, England. The idea was inspired by the way the desert flowers after a rainstorm.
Field of Light comprises over 15,000 individual lights, it slowly changes colour, transforming from blue to pink, yellow, green and back to white.
Light has always played a major part in my life and work and, therefore for me, it is a natural medium to use. By placing an alien installation in the midst of nature, the enormous contrast created allows one to literally see the wood from the trees.
Field of Light, like a giant surreal camp-side banana, is an alien installation in the midst of nature. And like dry desert seeds lying in wait for the rain, the sculpture’s fibre optic stems lie dormant until darkness falls, and then under a blazing blanket of stars they flower with gentle rhythms of light.
