Organised by arts group NVA, last weekend’s Speed of Light project saw runners illuminate the canal banks, bridges and public spaces around The Lowry, IWM North and MediaCity UK.
LEDs were attached the joints, limbs and heads of runners, who created patterns of light as they moved around the quays at dusk.
NVA could choreograph the light show by remotely controlling the lights in each individual suit.
NVA head designer James Johnson worked with manufacturer GDS to develop the light suits, while creative director Angus Farquhar, choreographer Sharon Watson and lighting designer Phil Supple created the performance.
Speed of Light has previously been staged at the 2012 Edinburgh Festival and on the docklands of Yokohama in Japan, and was shown in Salford from 21-23 March.
