Field of Light at the Holburne consists of over 5,000 bulbs of light planted in the grounds of the Museum and flowing into the Garden Cafe. Acrylic stems are topped by frosted spheres which are threaded with fibre optic cables and lit by a color projector. The result is quite magical, as both color and light flow through the bulbs to create a uniquely captivating experience.
The seed for Bruce Munro’s inspiration to create this artwork was planted nearly twenty years ago while travelling in Australia. He became transfixed by the way in which the barren dessert would burst into bloom after rainfall. Field of Light too lies dormant during the hours of day light, but when darkness falls the bulbs flower with gentle rhythms of light and patterns of color.

Flychelangelo is very humorous and creative artist- not to mention . The humor in the photos is very similar in style to the Far Side cartoon strip.

‘Soak, Dye in light” by Everyware is an empty canvas but when you touch it, its elastic surface causes colour to soak into it, enabling you to create your own multicoloured patterns of virtual dye.
Local materials such as herbs, flowers, rocks, juice of animals or shells have been used through the dying process. Especially in Korea, people have deep affection toward the unique colors and textures of fabric dyed with traditional materials. Now in the age of new media, we tried a whole new way of coloring fabrics with the essential materials of new media, ‘light’ and ‘interactivity’. Also, as a meta-creative interactive installation, ‘Soak’ can be expanded for creating garments with personalized patterns or textile productions using today’s digital fabric printing technologies.

“The miniature figure on the second hand moves around constantly and the figure on the minute hand appears stationary. I spent time thinking about the relationship between the two people, how one passes another repeatedly and I tried to think about when that situation happens in real life or in an imagined scenario. I altered head and arm angles of found model figures and made objects such as the LCD tv with wire and plug. The glass domes are hand blown to fit each watch exactly.”
These massive ribbons of color are made from little more than thread, and from a short distance, the inventive installations seem to be floating. Gabriel Dawe is a young conceptual artist of Mexican origin who currently lives in Dallas – USA – where he is achieving his MFA in Arts and Technology at the University of Texas.
His South American roots give a great influence to his works, colours are bright and vivid, as in the Plexus project, a series of installations that we can define optical, made with threads, nails and wood in a triumph of joy for the eyes.The sewing thread, the main material composing Plexus, is to create garments to protect the body from the weather. Similarly, the architecture responds to that function.Gabriel takes the characteristic of the garment and creates an architecture, a structure that does not repair from the material needs but it makes something not_real that identifies and defines the intangible needs: essential to the survival of humanity.

I find the A4 sheet of paper interesting to work with, because it is probably the most common and consumed media and format for carrying information today, and in that sense it is something very loaded. My paper works have been based around an exploration of the relationship between two and three dimensionality. I find this materialization of a flat piece of paper into a 3D form almost a magic process – or maybe one could call it obvious magic, because the process is obvious and the figures still stick to their origin, without the possibility of escaping. In that sense there is also an aspect of something tragic in most of the cuts.
