As the night falls in Uluru, our family got ready to venture off to the famed Field of Light Uluru. The critically acclaimed Field of Light Uluru is an internationally celebrated exhibition by artist Bruce Munro and can be visited until 31 December 2020. The exhibition, aptly named Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku or ‘looking at lots of beautiful lights’ in local Pitjantjatjara is Munro’s largest work to date. Given its popularity, we recommend that you book your tour before arriving at Ayers Rock Resort.
Field Of Light Uluru – About The Exhibition
Overwhelming in size, covering more than seven football fields, Field Of Light Uluru invites immersion in its fantasy garden of spindles of light, the stems breathing and swaying through a sympathetic desert spectrum of ochre, deep violet, blue and gentle white. These 50,000 solar-powered lights resemble bulb-shaped flowers and are connected by a network of fiber optics.
It is also the artist’s first work to be illuminated entirely through solar power. The spheres, connected via illuminated optical fibre, bloom as darkness falls. Pathways demarcated by these white guiding light draw viewers into the artwork, which comes to life under a sky
