Field of Light

  by oysterpots

We went to Bath to see the Field of Light installation by Bruce Munro, at the Holburne Museum. Typically, we left it til the last minute, and went on the final day of the show.

Here's what it's all about, according to the blurb:
Bruce Munro’s famous Field of Light is an ethereal and uplifting experience to lighten the darkest time of year. 1000s of tiny fibre optic lights will spread out from the Museum’s new extension, their reflections twinkling in the glass, and out into the back garden. In the grounds they form pools of light which shimmer and change colour to provide a spectacle of sheer magic. Bath’s very own answer to the Northern Lights.

We all thought it was ace. I love those pieces which are on such a large scale they take your breath away. Something of the Antony Gormley 'Field for the British Isles' about it (which, incidentally, will be shown in Somerset later this year).
