The sculptures, structures and installations on display are the creations of some of the most innovative artists and designers around today, presenting work using a great diversity of different forms of light technology. Together the artists represent four continents across the world with projects that are interactive, performance or visual spectacles to be admired from close up or from afar.

Appealing to art lovers, lighting enthusiasts, families, the young and the old, there is something for everyone as soon as dusk falls, and all for free.

Many pieces explore how we communicate in the modern world such as Julius Popp’s bit.fall that taps into live news feeds creating a digital typography waterfall and Bitone’s Totem that responds to the presence of mobile phone signals in the air around it. Other installations such as Jen Lewin’s The Pool encourages viewers to physically touch and engage with it and create visual and audio reactions.

Best seen after 4pm, all the installations and light effects will come alive throughout the evening until 9pm so join us on a dark January night and experience a wealth of inventive and spectacular creativity that will illuminate the Canary Wharf skyline.
