Celebrating the beauty of natural light, and the long summer days, Canary Wharf commissioned London artist Yoni Alter to create
an outdoor installation that is enhanced by the play of natural light
Alter has taken inspiration from the pointillist movement of the 1880s characterised by the painting technique of applying small dots of paint to build up the whole picture.
Here, 98 colourful translucent discs are suspended in mid-air to form a 3-meter-wide magnificent pointillist bird.
By casting colourful shadows, the bird transforms the area, making for a magical experience.
