'This was created for a BBC producer working at Salford Quays. It comprises a reflection of the Daniel Libeskind-designed Imperial War Museum North; the Dock House reflected in the granite benches outside; the lit-up bridge between the War Museum and the BBC, and a reflection of The Lowry Theatre in the BBC buidings.
