Bruce Munro originally conceived Field of Light in Australia in 1992, an auspicious year for the artist and his family. The red desert had an incredible feeling of energy; ideas seemed to radiate from it along with the heat. The Field of Light installation was one idea that landed in Bruce’s sketch book and refused to dislodge from his mind.
The first installation was at Harvey Nichols, London Nov 2003- Jan 2004. A second prototype was shown at the V&A Museum London April-May 2004. The first large-scale version was in the ten acre Long Knoll Field Oct 2004 -Oct 2005. Then came widespread international recognition for the field of Light at the Eden Project in Cornwall Nov 2008-Feb 2009. The beautiful Holburne Museum in Bath was the next host to Field of LIght Nov 2011-Jan 2012. Next stop: Longwood Gardens June 2012 – Oct 2012. Bruce fervently hopes to take Field of Light back to it's roots at Uluru (read more), Australia in Jan 2013.
