Our goal, with any installation, is to be thoughtful and considerate of the landscape, as well as the topography, and wildlife.
How will Field of Light impact migratory birds?
- The Field of Light installation will follow migratory bird guidelines set by the Texas Audubon Society which recommends ‘lights out’ from 11 p.m. – 6 a.m. The Field of Light exhibition will be illuminated from 5 – 9:30 p.m.
How will Field of Light impact light pollution and nature?
- The Field of Light installation will use solar powered LED ‘low lumen’ light spheres that produce the lowest amount of light possible.
- The artist, Bruce Munro, is committed to creating installations that have minimal environmental impact.
What is the material that the lights are made from? Is it sustainable?
- The materials are LED light sources (and solar powered), fiber optics, glass, and acrylics.
- All materials are sustainable as they are all highly recyclable without loss of condition, and they are also very durable.
How is the installation being disposed of after the exhibition is over? Are the materials recycled and reused?
- The entire exhibition is shipping back to the studio, for cleaning up and reuse.
- Bruce Munro does a considerable amount of charitable installations in the UK. The materials are re-used for these purposes.
