Winter Lights Festival @ Canary Wharf

Canary Wharf has been illuminated by sculptures, structures and installations as part of the Winter lights Festival @ Canary Wharf. 

Many pieces were about how we communicate in the modern world, one using a live newsfeed to extract words for them to be projected onto falling water droplets.

What was interesting was to leisurely walk around Canary Wharf at night; a place which has the reputation of being full of men in dark suits walking in what could be described as a human version of an ants nest. The illuminations drew in a wide variety of people all seeming to enjoy the unexpected freedom of movement compared to the crowded streets of central London for Lumiere London.

Fingers crossed this festival will be repeated in 2017.
