Artist Jo Fairfax collaborated with lighting designer Adam Spinos to create this artwork for The Rock, a shopping centre in the middle of Bury.

23 hollow light sculptures made from 20mm thick opaque acrylic are home to over 732 LEDs which can be pre-programmed to present light sequences that interact with the environment. Movement sensors at the base of each of the light stacks trigger as people wander through the artwork activating a series of lights behind them which stay on for about five seconds, leaving a trail of light as they walk.
