It has just been announced that internationally acclaimed artist Bruce Munro’s immersive installation Field of Light Uluru has been extended and will remain in place until Dec 31, 2020. The award-winning exhibition, located at Ayers Rock Resort in the spiritual heart of Australia, opened last year and has exceeded all expectations, proving to be a standout drawcard to the destination.
The exhibition, aptly named Tili Wiru Tjuta Nyakutjaku or “looking at a lot of beautiful lights” in the local Pitjantjatjara language, is Munro’s largest work to date. More than 50,000 slender stems are crowned with radiant frosted-glass spheres over an area the size of nine football fields. It is the artist’s first work to be illuminated entirely with solar power. The spheres, connected with illuminated optical fibre, bloom as darkness falls. Pathways draw viewers into the artwork, which comes to life under a sky brilliant with stars.
You can enjoy the field in a number of ways — a Field of Light Pass includes transfers, a Star Pass includes transfers and sparkling wine and canapés, and for those who want a special evening under the stars there is the A Night at Field of Light dining experience that includes transfers — guests can opt to arrive by helicopter or camel for an additional charge. Until March 24, you can also enjoy Mayu Wiru, meaning “beautiful flavour” in Pitjantjatjara. This premium experience for a maximum of 16 guests combines a gourmet menu celebrating the ancient flavours of Indigenous Australia with a private escorted tour through Field of Light.
