It seems England is brightening up this winter, last week saw the city of Durham become a festival of light for Lumiere 2011 and this weekend the Holburne Museum in Bath has welcomed Field of Light by artist Bruce Munro. The piece, which has had previous incarnations, and it has evolved with each one. The current setup is made of 5220 acrylic stems which have fibre optic cables running through with a frosted acrylic ball atop each one. The stems are illuminated by an external projector on a colour wheel, with the stems themselves having no electricity in them at all.

Check out the stunning images below and lament that this isn’t what your front garden looks like for the festive season.
