LARGE inflatable light-up bunnies have hopped into MediaCityUK for this year’s digital light festival, Lightwaves.

Although, they’re not alone. They are joined by two more extraordinary installations, commissioned by artists from around the globe.

People at MediaCity were also wowed by AMAZE and Cathedral of Mirrors in the Quays Culture outdoor exhibition.

Lucy Dusgate, programme producer at Quays Culture, wants to build on last year’s event.

The programme includes art work that is based on technology. Lucy explains why it is so important to show this element.

Quays News also caught up with Danish artist, Mads Christensen, who has flown over to Manchester from his studio in LA. He tells us the reasons behind his art.

AMAZE is situated on The Piazza, the heart of MediaCityUK. It is a towering psychedelic maze. Those who enter will “experience magical moments, both private and collective.”

Quays News has heard that members of the public even want to name the bunnies!

The festival is free and open to the public until the 27th December, excluding Christmas Day. Find out more by searching for #lightwaves15 on social media.
