2004, DeCordova Museum, Lincoln, MA
Viewers walk through this enchanted garden on a meandering pathway, past yellow, orange and purple "flowers" that sparkle like fireflies. Evoking a meadow at dusk, this "natural" place is made entirely of industrial materials. Each flower consists of a cast resin seedpod with an LED light inside, set atop a piano wire "stalk" that sways in the breeze as viewers move by.
Beth Galston's Luminous Garden #2 (Night Meadow) is clearly enchanted. The flowers glow, attracting us with light rather than smell. -- DeCordova Annual Catalog READ REVIEWS
