Artist Bruce Munro plans solar field of light in Australia
To complete the immense project, Munro would use 3290 kilometers (2045 miles) of fiber, 165 kilometers (103 miles) of recycled acrylic tubing, 250,000 glass spheres and steel ground stakes, plus 500 custom made solar powered illuminators. These illuminators would ensure that the flower-like lights are 100 percent self-sustaining, leaving a minimal carbon footprint as possible.
It will take 1000 man days to construct the solar lights and a further 1850 man days for a team of 41 men to install and dismantle the installation. If Munro is successful in fulfilling this dream, there is no doubt that the outcome will be spectacular installation and a light show not to be missed.
“The Field of Light, like the dormant seed in a dry desert, quietly waits until darkness falls and then under a blazing blanket of southern stars it blooms with gentle rhythms of light,” says Munro.
Munro hopes to install the Field of Light at Uluru from April-October 2013 and is currently seeking fundraising contributions online to help realize the project.
