In December 2015, Salford Quays and MediaCityUK played host to a series of digital art installations with Lightwaves 2015 showcasing the work of international artists until December 24th (unfortunately severe weather in the North West of England necessitated the early closure of this event which had originally been scheduled to run until 27th December) .

“Cathedral of Mirrors” by Mads Christensen a Danish artist now living in the United States, was positioned on the Lowry Plaza between the Lowry Centre and the Lowry Outlet Mall at Salford Quays. The Quays Culture website LinkExternal link states that “Mads' work explores how patterns of light affect people emotionally and his latest work, commissioned especially for the Quays fest, lights up in response to the movement of crowds”.

The festival was created to celebrate UNESCO's International Year of Light and was backed by AGMA and Arts Council England. Amongst the other installation was SJ8097 : "Amaze", Digital Art Installation at MediaCityUK.
