Bruce Munro Illuminates Australian Desert with 50,000 Solar Powered Lights #ArtTuesday

NewImage

This installation looks so appealing. We can only imagine how otherworldly and magical that section of desert must appear when actually encountering it at night. From Colossal:

Over 50,000 bulbs light up an expanse of Australia’s Red Centre desert near Ayers Rock in an installation about the size of four football fields. The solar powered work, Field of Light Uluru, was produced by artist Bruce Munro who conceived of the idea while visiting Uluru in 1992. Twelve 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.
