The interactive festival - where you can actually get up close to the light sources - includes 30 sculptures, lasers, projections and digital art. Works include Sonic Light Bubble, a six-metre wide living, breath installation; Halo, a giant levitating halo; Apparatus Florius, a multi-coloured light installation featuring giant geometric patterns; and On Your Wavelength, an interactive light and music sculpture that is controlled by your mind.

About Canary Wharf

Home to the big banks, Canary Wharf is a purpose-built office hub in the regenerated Docklands. With the site extending to over 97 acres it's almost like a separate city in the east of London, powered by and for the financial sector. More about Canary Wharf
