docklands xmas lights_INDEPENDENT_1995-12-19.pdf (12 MB)The event celebrating the first decade of successful operation of an automated mass transit system linking initially the East end of London with the inner centre. The project used the movement of the trains to interactively animate the six buildings and a viaduct in Canary Wharf with light.

The event became hugely popular with families with children and this was documented by a considerable temporary increase in the number of passengers.

The project also involved an extensive outreach programme involving six local schools in transforming the adjoining DLR stations with artworks.
