DAYLIGHT ON DEMAND
Gone are the days when the sun goes down and so does the fun. ARB’s Intensity LED light range, available in two sizes, delivers outstanding performance in all conditions, giving you daylight on demand at the flick of a switch.
Uluru is the final destination for many tourers. It’s ground zero of what Carlisle Rogers calls the inward spiral where we find ourselves inextricably magnetised to the centre of the continent to unravel the secrets of the land.
Each night the Uluru night sky is ablaze with stars, or the flooded high tide high beams of a desert moon, but in 1992 visiting British artist Bruce Munro came up with an idea to look at the secrets of the red heart through an entirely different lens.
It has taken 25 years for Bruce’s dream to become a once-in-a-lifetime reality. Field of Light was one idea that landed in my sketchbook and kept on nagging at me to be done, he recalls.
Bruce worked together with Ayers Rock Resort and Qantas, who few out 50,000 light stems to place in the crimson desert sands to create what we reckon is the most stunning outdoor art installation Australia’s ever seen.
Bruce explains, I saw in my mind a landscape of illuminated stems that, like dormant seeds in a dry desert, quietly wait until darkness falls, under a blanket of southern stars, to bloom with gentle rhythms of light.
Not surprisingly, Field of Light is another signature Ayers Rock Resort project. They’ve long had a vision to draw people to appreciate and get involved with our most precious natural assets, and giving tourers life-changing experiences in the process. As Bruce continues, Field of Light is a personal symbol for the good things in life.
After all, this is a place many of us are familiar with, where we wash off the grime accrued from months of exploration living out of a vehicle, and treat ourselves to a couple of nights of luxury before making the long march home.
Munro’s solar-powered installation will be open right up until the end of March, and having recently returned, we can personally attest that this is one experience more than worthy of jumping on a plane to see.
