Lights bloom in Cornwall

“Field of Light” by Bruce Munro (currently installed at the Eden Project in Corwall, UK) consists of 6,000 acrylic stems connected with fiber optic cables ending in a clear glass sphere. The stems themselves hold no power, so there are 11 external projectors that send light to the balls while the entire installation covers an area of 60 x 20 meters with over 24,000 meters of fiber optic cable. Pretty impressive build, although we wouldn’t want to be untangling these cables after the install is over.

    That goes without thinking about the amount of energy needed to light all those things.
