Field of Light art installation, and global phenomenon, by internationally acclaimed artist Bruce Munro, is coming to Australia for the first time. As part of Ayers Rock Resort’s commitment to arts and culture, it’s hosting the biggest Field of Light installation to date at the place that inspired it – Uluru.
Bruce Munro and his team will install more than 50,000 slender stems crowned with frosted-glass spheres that will bloom as darkness falls over Australia’s spiritual heartland. Pathways will draw viewers into the installation, which will come to life under a sky brilliant with stars.
About the artist
Bruce Munro is noted for his immersive site-specific installations that employ light to evoke emotional response, often in an outdoor context and on a monumental scale. Born in London in 1959, Munro’s passion for light as a medium began in Australia. Munro visited Uluru in 1992 as he bid farewell the country he’d called home for eight years.
