Bruce Munro's CDSea Regatta Photographed Under Rocket-Light At Long Knoll, Wiltshire
When we let the rockets off, they soared into the air and it was a really nostalgic moment” says Munro.
WARMINSTER.- Bruce Munro’s new artwork ‘CDSea’ which was installed in a field near Kilmington on 19/20th June, was given a brief new lease of life when illuminated by rocket light before being disbanded earlier than planned.

“I wanted to try another light effect while CDSea was in place” says Munro, who calls the installation under firework light “CDSea Regatta”.

Munro’s family and workshop team and several friends joined him a few nights after CDSea was installed at Long Knoll Field, as licensed firework handlers ignited £200 worth of rockets over the field.

“When we let the rockets off, they soared into the air and it was a really nostalgic moment” says Munro.

As a child his father lived in Salcombe and there, at the end of the summer, the town held an annual Regatta with a candle-lit procession. “The fishermen would tie the boats together and one fisherman would lead the others across the harbour under the light of fireworks.” says Munro.

The inspiration for CDSea itself was a memory of being a young man at Nielson Park, Australia, homesick and far from his family in Salcombe, UK. When dipping his hand in the sea, Munro felt connected to his seaside home, and the quality of the light transforming his mood proved a seminal moment for him.

It was hoped that CDSea could remain in place for two months, but plans have had to change. The grass growing up, and the damage wreaked by birds flipping up the CDs, has forced the installation to be disbanded after two weeks.

Currently Munro is paying a team of kids £1 a bag to collect up the CDs, and it will all be gone by the end of the week, and sent to recycle in Frome. Like a rocket tracing across the sky before it’s gone without trace, only the photographs and memory of CDSea will remain.
