Bruce Munro's Field of Light

Bruce Munro's Field of Light

Bruce Munro's Field of Light installation at the Eden Project in Cornwall, England.
Field of Light, like a giant surreal camp-side banana, is an alien installation in the midst of nature. And like dry desert seeds lying in wait for the rain, the sculpture’s fibre optic stems lie dormant until darkness falls, and then under a blazing blanket of stars they flower with gentle rhythms of light. ‘Field of Light’ is about the desert as much as the roadside campsites - and like much of Munro’s work is characterised by an almost mystical passion for nature teamed with a robust sense of humour.
Light has always played a major part in Munro’s life and work, “for me, it is a natural medium to use” he says. Over the years, the design format and technology of Field of Light have evolved and it has been shown in many places. It is made of acrylic tubes, through which fibre optic cables run, each topped by an acrylic ball. There is an external projector, and so the stems themselves hold no electric power at all. At the Eden Project, the installation will have 6,000 tubes and cover an area of 60 x 20 meters, using 24, 000 meters of fibre.

Pumpkin Seeds
Native Americans used pumpkin seeds for food and medicine.
Native Americans called pumpkins "isqoutm squash."
Colonists sliced off pumpkin tops; removed seeds and filled the insides with milk, spices and honey. This was baked in hot ashes and is the origin of pumpkin pie.
In colonial times, Native Americans roasted long strips of pumpkin in an open fire.
Pumpkins were once recommended for removing freckles and curing snake bites.
Pumpkin seeds can be roasted as a snack.

Get Smart about Antibiotics Week is in October. Antibiotics can cure bacterial infections, but not viral infections. The common cold and the flu are viral infections, so avoid using antibiotics if you have one of these. Using antibiotics when they are not needed causes some bacteria to become resistant to the antibiotic, and therefore stronger and harder to kill. See your doctor or nurse to find out if your illness is bacterial or viral.

Have a great day!
