Have you heard of the Field of light?
Its a solar powered installation hosted by Ayres Rock resort near Uluru. Its in the Red Centre and you add it to a few of our tours.
The Field of Light is all solar-powered it has 50,000 frosted-glass spheres cover 49,000 square metres of red desert.
As visitors explore the work, which looks like a field of futuristic flowers blooming between tufts of spinifex, they’re enveloped by choreographed waves of colour that artist Bruce Munro toned down so it didn’t out-do the spectacle of the star-spangled night sky.
Bruce Munro the British artist conceived the idea at Uluru in 1992 but it wasn’t until 2004 that Field of Light first materialised at both London’s Victoria & Albert Museum and in Munro’s own backyard in south-west England.
His evocative backyard installation of 15,000-plus stems of light illuminating a 10-acre field of clover struck such a chord that Field of Light has since dazzled visitors at sites across the United Kingdom, the United States and Mexico.
As part of Ayers Rock Resort’s commitment to arts and culture, which includes staging once-in-a-lifetime experiences, it’s hosting the biggest Field of Light installation to date at the place that inspired it - Uluru.
In keeping with the Northern Territory desert’s vast scale, Munro and his team installed more than 50,000 slender stems crowned with radiant frosted-glass spheres.
The solar-powered installation can be seen until March 31, 2017.
