I have no idea what the predictions were for attenddee numbers but it was incredibly crowde. Geoff and I decided to focus on just one area, around Kings Cross and Granary Square which is one of my favourite areas in summer. However, some of the installations were tucked in quite awkward lanes, or dead ends, which made movement around the area quite difficult.

My favourite piece was down on the canal, and looked like equalisers that appeared on stereos when I was a kid. Each panel turned independently of the others, and at different speeds. This, combined with the reflection on the canal looked magical.

The other installation I really enjoyed was a piece that looked like a mirrored satelite dish and captured and threw light in different patterns as it turned and the dish moved from horizontal to near vertical.
