Lightwaves 2018, Youth Culture
Lightwaves 2018, Youth Culture
The Lightwaves 2018 festival was held between 7th and 16th December. As in previous years, the free event featured a range of impressive light displays and playful art installations; some returning and some newly created.

A major new commission for this year's festival is “Youth Culture”, by internationally-renowned London artist Stanza. It stands at the northern end of the MediaCityUK Piazza with its back to North Bay and the Ship Canal. A towering hooded figure made up of mini screens, LEDs and ultrasound sensors, it depicts a strong hooded youth through which collected data and information flows as coloured lights react and illuminate the sculpture as visitors approach it.

Lightwaves claims to be the UK’s largest free outdoor digital art light show. The annual festival, hosted by Quays Culture, showcases an eclectic programme of digital light art, taking over public spaces in Salford Quays and MediaCityUK each December. Each year, Lightwaves features new and exclusively commissioned digital art displays alongside tableaux borrowed from the Blackpool Illuminations.
