The Lightwaves Squirrel
The Lightwaves Squirrel
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. The squirrel sculpture, which formed part of the Unnatural Borders installation at MediaCityUK last May, returned for the event. The sculpture was illuminated at night with the use of projection mapping technology creating a stunning visual display of ever-changing patterns of lights and colour.
