For the next week, London's Canary Wharf is aglow with a series of amazing art installations that range from this 18-foot-tall alien. (Fantastic Planet, by Amanda Parer) .......
Artists from four continents have created 18 sculptures, many of which are interactive. So you can stand on the touchpads of The Pool, by Jen Lewin, and watch the colours change (below),
