London deals with the long, gloomy nights in January by lighting up the sky. As well as the return of Lumiere London, the commercial towers of Canary Wharf are also getting some colourful light treatment.
The free event includes light sculptures, structures and installations created by international artists. Visitors can marvel at a six metre wide, installation filled with 236 programmed LEDs that pulsates with light and sound when you approach or touch it, and a giant levitating halo.
Other highlights include 10 illuminated colour changing benches, a huge kaleidoscopic light-wall installation, and sunlight graffiti – where you can use solar energy to draw with.
