Aeolian Light was installed at Salford Quays from 17 December 2014 to 7 January 2015. In that time 547,973 people visited the exhibit.

Inspired by the windy location at Salford Quays, Aeolian Light visualises the wind as an illuminated chaotic force. Virtual debris and imaginary fields of energy pass through the work, carried on the wind in gusts and blasts. The strings and lights also sway physically in the wind, and people add a layer of illumination and turbulence as they walk through the piece.

Aeolian Light is a highly evocative outdoor installation artwork by digital artists Squidsoup, using over 12,000 individually controlled lights suspended in space to create an unforgettable, immersive, dynamic, walkthrough experience that is also a very striking visitor experience.
