I was recently browsing the internet for some
Art Installation Inspiration
(say that 10 times fast)
...and I stumbled onto the works of
and his FIELD OF LIGHT series...
Soooooo I am totally in awe of him and his incredibly whimsical body of work!
Please click on his name to view his website because it is worth checking out his whole portfolio.
This what he has to say on the concept of the field of lights...
"It was originally conceived fifteen years ago during a trip through central Australia. The red desert had an incredible feeling of energy; ideas seemed to radiate from it along with the heat. The field of light installation was one idea that landed in my sketch book and kept on nagging at me... it just had to be done. By placing an alien installation in the midst of nature, the enormous contrast created allows one to literally see the wood from the trees. Under the shadow of an ancient hill in southwest England, in a field of clover bisected by a public footpath, the field of light shimmered through seasons and presented a myriad of opportunities for passersby to catch glimpses of natures guises."
Here are some more pics from his different field of light installations:
