“By placing an alien installation in the midst of nature, the enormous contrast created allows people to literally see the wood from the trees”
– Bruce Munro
“I wanted to create a field of light stems, that, like the dormant seed in a dry desert, would quietly wait until darkness falls, and then, under a blazing blanket of southern stars, would bloom with gentle rhythms of light.
Under the shadow of an ancient hill in southwest England, the Field of Light will shimmer its way through the seasons, presenting a myriad of opportunities for passers-by to catch glimpses of nature’s guises.
I am hopeful that it will inspire both young and old to take from it and create something of their own to pass on in turn to others.”
