This solar powered work, Field of Light Uluru, was produced by artist Bruce Munro who first got this idea while he was visiting Uluru in 1992. 12 years later, he created its first iteration in a field behind his home, and it has since moved the work around to several different sights across the United Kingdom, United States, and Mexico.
Munro recalls: “I wanted to create an illuminated field of stems that, like the dormant seed in a dry desert, would burst into bloom at dusk with gentle rhythms of light under a blazing blanket of stars.”
The local tribe have named the piece Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku in Pitjantjatjara, meaning “looking at lots of beautiful lights.” You can visit the installation and experience the beautiful Field of Light right up until April 2017. Profits for the exhibition will directly benefit the local community.
