Cables creation in Canary Wharf

Feb. 5, 2010
Date Announced: 05 Feb 2010 London based Designer Admir Jukanovic, was commissioned by the Canary Wharf Group public art team to create a Winter Wonderland in Jubilee Park at Canary Wharf.Admir, who is the Senior Lighting Designer at Mindseye Lighting ( said the idea behind the installation was to represent the energies that lie underground. Beneath the park there are thousands of kilometres of electronic cables and Admir’s design creates the illusion that the cables have been pulled out of the ground in two’s and three’s and the illumination pulsates with implied energy. "It's showing what is non-visible to the park. When you walk through it is a beautiful space but essentially there's a hidden world below, containing a shopping centre, restaurants, tube stations and car parks and these cables reflect the importance of their function and the world that lies beneath” explains Admir.The installation runs on LEDs to keep maintenance and running costs low. This allows the installation to run on less than 100 watts. The exhibition – entitled Kablovi Park - is running until 26th February 2010.
