Bruce Munro’s gorgeous fiber optic ’Field of Light’ installation is inspired by the beautiful displays of flowers that burst forth from Australia’s desert landscape. The UK-based lighting designer conceived of the installation years ago while driving across Stuart Highway on a road trip through Australia. Every night he would stop to rest at roadside campsite, where green grass and surreal sculptures struck a stark contrast to the surrounding red desert. Munro was fascinated by these oases, and how dormant desert seeds would burst into beautiful flowers when it rained. The idea stuck with Munro for years until he finally brought it to life in a brilliant installation at the Eden Project in Cornwall.
