Battersea Light Festival: Battersea Power StationBanishing the winter blues, Battersea stages a light festival of four installations at the former power station whose distinctive chimney columns punctuate the south London skyline. Perhaps the most visually striking is Talking Heads, created by Viktor Vicsek; two heads, each composed of 4,000 customisable LED lights, react to one another to create a myriad of facial expressions. The light installations, free to enjoy from 8th January until 16th February, also include a large interactive screen with a thousand buttons which you can use to make patterns, 140 filtered fluorescent tubes which bring light to the historic Grade II*-listed Coaling Jetty and an interactive neon sign which draws you in with its bright colours, provoking message and loud rustling noises.

About Battersea Power Station

The masterpiece of architect Giles Gilbert Scott, the Grade II listed Battersea Power Station has taken on an iconic status in the capital. With its huge frame and four white smoke-stacks (two of which were built in 1933, the remaining two in 1955) protruding into the London sky, the construction initially received protests from those who felt the building was too large and would be an eyesore.
