We have previously posted on acclaimed lighting artist Bruce Munro and the newly re-opened Holburne Museum…
…now the two come together as Bruce switches on his ‘Field of Light’ installation in the grounds of the museum at 4pm on Saturday 26 November.
Field of Light at the Holburne will consist of over 5,000 bulbs of light planted in the grounds of the Museum and flowing into the Garden Cafe. Acrylic stems are topped by frosted spheres which are threaded with fibre optic cables and lit by a colour projector. The result is quite magical, as both colour and light flow through the bulbs to create a uniquely captivating experience.
Bruce Munro says, “I hope the Holburne’s visitors and Christmas shoppers in Bath will enjoy Field of Light. I think it is a piece with universal appeal and I’ll be happy if it makes people smile at Christmas time.”
The installation runs from 26 November 2011 to 8 January 2012
Open daily 4 to 7pm, admission free.
