Zim zimma, who got the keys to my illuminated flotilla?

Canary Wharf's Winter Lights

Anyone passing by Canary Wharf’s Middle Dock may witness an eerie sight this week. In what’s proving to be a big month for floating things up the Thames, 300 illuminated paper boats are bringing a little colour to an otherwise gloomy time of year. As part of Canary Wharf’s annual Winter Lights installation, architect Claudio Benghi and lighting artist Gloria Ronchi have created Voyage, a flotilla of 300 glowing floating paper boats. Not a fan of purple? You can even change the colour of the boats by connecting your phone to Voyage’s wi-fi network. Jonno Hopkins

Voyage runs until February 14 2013.
