The Field of Light is a large-scale light-based installation created by British artist Bruce Munro It was originally conceived in 1992, when Munro took a farewell road trip through central Australia with his fiancée. Munro made his first prototype Field of Light for London’s Harvey Nichols department store. Shortly after Field of Light was exhibited at the »Brilliant!» Exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum in 2004, Munro developed a larger version of the installation for Long Knoll Field in Wiltshire. In 2015, Munro was invited to return to Uluru to create the installation there, at the place of its inspiration.
The exhibition is Munro’s largest work today, with more than 50, 000 slender stems crowned with radiant frosted-glass spheres over an area of the size of seven football fields. As darkness falls and Uluru is thrown into silhouette, field of light illuminates. After a sell-out success in 2016, the award-winning Field of Light has been extended for another season, until 31 March 2018.
