Bruce Munro’s Spectacular Light Installation at Longwood Gardens

British artist Bruce Munro is back with another spectacular light installation, this time taking his lighting expertise to Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania. The exhibition simply called Light features a number of illuminated sculptural structures across the 23-acre expanse. The various pieces radiate against the night sky, adding a colorful liveliness to the natural backdrop of the gardens.

Intermingled amongst the flowers and greenery are some of Munro’s most inventive pieces including Arrow Spring, a sprout of copper fiber optic stems popping out amongst a trail of salvia plants. The installment presents a path of glimmering wisps of light similar to a series of glowing flowers or perhaps a shimmering sprinkler system that has been set off. Other intriguingly attractive sculptural landmarks include Munro’s multihued water towers made of clear containers illuminated by systemized LED lights.

The exhibition is currently on display and set to run through September 29, 2012. You can check out a time-lapsed video, below, of the installation’s construction and result.
