The Artwork of Bruce Munro

Last night we visited the Desert Botanical Gardens and saw the work of Bruce Munro.  I hope you enjoy his art as I've photographed it, and if you have the chance to experience it in person, I highly recommend it!

"British artist Bruce Munro is best known for immersive large-scale light-based installations inspired largely by his interest in shared human experience. Recording ideas and images in sketchbooks has been his practice for over 30 years. By this means he has captured his responses to stimuli such as music, literature, science, and the world around him for reference, reflection, and subject matter. This tendency has been combined with a liking for components and an inventive urge for reuse, coupled with career training in manufacture of light. As a result Munro produces both monumental temporary experiential artworks as well as intimate story-pieces."
