FIELD: flickering fluorescent tubes

Richard Box‘ FIELD is an interesting light installation that “features several thousand ready-made glass fluorescent tubes that flicker into life across the hillside as the early evening light fades”.

The bulbs are ‘planted‘ across the site at the foot of an electricity pylon, and pick up the waste emission from the overhead power line.  The performance each evening is hard to anticipate since it is heavily dependent on the weather.  In all the best traditions of land art, it is conditional on the variations of the great outdoors and requires its audience to be patient.
