BRUCE MUNRO
OUR DAYS
UK/AUSTRALIA

Bruce Munro light installations
Bruce Munro is an English-Australian artist known for creating large immersive site-specific installations that often incorporate thousands of components. He often uses light for storytelling and to create an emotional response for the viewer.
Let's see how Midjourney recognizes Bruce Munro's name in V3 and V4:

And that's how other versions react:

Bruce Munro's name in Midjourney returns various but equally beautiful results. Often inheriting light painting visual qualities—light traces, glowing curves blurred in motion, colorful bright spots—Munro's style is poetic and mystical at the same time (most of the generations take place outdoors and at night).

FEATURED GENRES

SCULPTURE AND INSTALLATION

Midjourney AI style reference sample: blueprint
kinetic sculpture --ar 3:1 --stylize 3000 --v 3
Since today's update is devoted to sculpture, I wanted to highlight not one technique but four of some of the most exciting sculpting genres: kinetic sculpture, subtractive sculpture, inflatable sculpture, and conceptual installation.
kinetic sculpture --v 4
subtractive sculpture --v 4
inflatable sculpture --v 4
conceptual installation --v 4
Kinetic sculptures are capable of movement, often through motors or other mechanical devices. Subtractive sculpture involves removing material from a larger block or form to create a negative space in the final piece. Inflatable sculpture uses air or other gases to create temporary or mobile objects. And Conceptual installation utilizes various materials and mediums to create immersive, experiential artworks around sensitive themes and complex ideas.

That's it for this week.
