Field of Light
Offering inspiration for theatrically oriented designers across the board, Field of Light – an installation by British sculptural light artist Bruce Munro – has transformed the gardens of the Holburne Museum in Bath, England into a fantastically illuminated nightscape.
Inspired by the emergence of Australian desert flowers following a rain shower, Munro has created an intricate network of fibre optic cables, connecting more than 5,000 stemmed light bulbs, covered by frosted globes. A projector then sends a wave of colour through the designated cables and into the glowing spheres, creating a multicoloured sea of light.
Munro first exhibited Field of Light at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum in 2004 before installing it at the Eden Project in Cornwall in 2009.
