This year the award-winning Winter Lights Festival of Canary Wharf took place between 16th-25th January, for the sixth time.

25 spectacular light installations and interactive artworks of global artists, illuminated dark and cold nights of London.

The visitors got a chance to admire some of the artworks from a distance and some very close and interact with them.

The world wide lighting festivals are hosting various illuminated artworks of global artists. They are using their imaginations and all possible new lighting and software technologies to create their art pieces. Thanks to the incredible devolopments in these fields artists could create colorful, interactive, flexible, patterned structures.

To visit these open-air exhibitions in the unique architectural environments of various cities is very enjoyable. Even if some art works could be used in different festivals in different cities, to watch them in different surroundings is always a different experiment.

Besides pleasant moments during the festivals, the main purpose is to take attention and make think people about worldly problems that concern us all.

Shortly saying, it s speaking, communicating, activating with art and light.
