Lasers on the Imperial War Museum North
‘Thank You’ is a contemporary digital artwork in the form of a light projection which was created by Craig Morrison in memory of the men and women who served in the First and Second World War, and to thank Alan Turing for the many lives he helped to save. The work was originally commissioned by the Arts Council of Wales to commemorate the centenary of Alan Turing LinkExternal link who is credited with cracking Nazi Germany’s Enigma code.

For a week, commencing 21st March 2014, two of the most powerful display laser beams in the world were mounted onto the roof of The Lowry beaming ‘Thank You’ in Morse Code across the night sky and onto the Imperial War Museum North building on the opposite bank of the Manchester Ship Canal.
