Angel of Light is constructed from around 50,000 CDs which were placed in a circle in front of the house as a dazzling entrance hall. The installation was outlined with battery-operated LED candle lanterns to keep it sparkling through the night.

Munro used a different technique to make Blue Moon on a Platter, in which he pinned thousands of CDs to the banks of the amphitheater which measured a massive 28 meters. At the center he placed a ‘Moon’, within which were 150 spheres of coiled optic-fiber [6] that glowed with a blue light that emitted across the CDs. Playing alongside the installation, a soundtrack of 18 moon-themed songs provides a perfect accompaniment!
