The largest site-specific light artwork ever created across Ireland’s Connemara mountains is work by Finnish artist Kari Kola. Inspired by the way Oscar Wilde referred to a mountainous region as a “savage beauty,” he has installed an artwork bearing the same name, sprawling over a three mile distance.
Savage Beauty is comprised of 1,000 pulsating lights scattered across the mountain slope, powered by 16 generators that were meticulously placed into position using helicopters. Despite the precautionary measures over the coronavirus outbreak, the artist hired a team of video specialists to capture the work in a stirring clip, offering visitors and tourist to become enchanted. Watch the clip of Savage Beauty below.
