Field of Light
Field of Light
Artist Bruce Munro’s internationally acclaimed solar installation Field of Light has arrived at the Red Centre, offering visitors to the region a transformative experience of iconic Uluru-Kata Tjuta.
Bruce conceived the idea for the Field of Light while visiting Uluru in 1992, but it first materialised in 2004 at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum. The work has since appeared in varying incarnations around the UK, in the US and Mexico.
The Field of Light at Uluru is the largest recreation of the installation, made up of 50,000 bud-like stems and crowned with radiant frosted-glass spheres, which bloom and appear to sway as darkness descends over Australia’s spiritual heartland. Pathways invite visitors into the artwork, which comes to life under a sky brilliant with stars.
Longitude 131° guests experience the interactive artwork as part of the signature experiences program, arriving at dusk to meander around the field before enjoying the cool night skies at Table 131°. Witness the monumental combination of art and culture every night until December 31, 2020.
