Broadgate is transformed by a cloud of luminous balloons
CANCELLATION, THURSDAY 20 SEPT: Due to inclement weather we have had to cancel tonight's Child Hood installation. We hope to resume normal service tomorrow (Friday). We're very sorry for the disappointment.
Originally commissioned by Artichoke for Lumiere London in Trafalgar Square, an installation of illuminated balloons fills Broadgate. As they move gently in the wind, they introduce an element of chaos into this otherwise meticulously ordered and mesmerising sound and light composition.
