Next January, London is to have two light festivals, running at the same time.
One was announced a few weeks ago, to run in central London, but not to be left out, Canary Wharf has just announced its own plans for a light festival as well.
The Winter Lights Festival 2016 will bring 18 different sculptures to the docks, including an 18 foot high alien, a flutter of butterflies and a digital waterfall, all depicted using innovative forms of light technology.
Other installations are also interactive, with the viewer encouraged to physically touch and engage with the works in order to provoke different visual and audio reactions.
The festival, Winter Lights 2016 is free to the public and can be seen across the Canary Wharf Estate from 11th January to 22nd January.
The majority of works will be best viewed from dusk. Some installations will be switched off at around 9pm.
In conjunction with the Winter Lights Festival, an exhibition by artist Nathaniel Rackowe featuring sculptural works using light will be on display in the lobby of One Canada Square from 11th January to 12th February 2016, presented in collaboration with The House of the Nobleman.
For reference, the central London light festival runs between 14th-17th January 2016.
