on now through september 29th, 2012
in 'light', his first-ever large-scale solo show, british artist bruce munro fills pennsylvania's longwood gardens
with sculptural and immersive installations, comprising over the course of 23-acres six outdoor installations,
two interior projects within the grand conservatory on the grounds, and a collection of illuminated sculptural
works in the 'music room'.
nearly all of the outdoor works seem to hide amidst nature: 'waterlilies', composed of hundreds of used CDs,
float alongside natural victoria lilies in one of the garden's lakes, and 'arrow spring', named after the river in the book 'kim'
by rudyard kipling, creates a meandering spring set among the salvia plants.
'forest of light' illuminates the woods with 20,000 stems scattered along a forest path. more information and concept
renders in designboom's 2011 preview of the longwood gardens 'light' exhibition.
