ASIA'S LEADING SUSTAINABLE LIGHT ART FESTIVAL
If you like photography, this year installations are very instagram-worthy. Some of which are interactive. These are the 5 not to be missed installations.
THE BODY OF THE SEADanny Rose | France
Location: Merlion Park
Don't you love the Merlion? I love the play of lights giving it a change of dress. The light installation gives the Merlion a coral dress, a surreal skin of fish, shells and other marine creatures allowing it to return to the sea. Very pretty if you ask me.
A simple but lovely display of wire-meshed flowers invites passers-by to take a walk through the garden in the dark. Talking about sustainability, each flower is powered by its own solar powered LED. Best of all, it can be a in support of the Garden City Fund, a charity that runs sustainable projects in Singapore! I am not sure whether they are fully adopted. You may want to check with the Information Counter.
OCEAN PAVILIONLuke Jerram | United Kingdom
Location: The Promontory
Inspired by the microscopic organisms found in the rivers and seas around Singapore, the Ocean Pavilion allows visitors to walk in too! Made from 25,000 upcycled Evian plastic bottles with the help of students from 11 schools around Singapore, the artwork promotes reuse and upcycling efforts. The blue lights made it look real cool!
THE URCHINJin Choi and Thomas Adam Shine | USA
Inspired by the sea urchin, this delicate installation allows passers-by to get into it for photo-taking. It has textured and permeable surface interacting with light while the intricate lace-like pattern is constructed through mathematical repetition. At night, the lighted up Urchins make their occupants glow, but during the day, the Urchins interact with natural light projecting shadow patterns over the boardwalk and offer shade under the sun.
THE COLORFUL GARDEN OF LIGHTTILT | France
Location: Clifford Square
The peonies (not in picture) and the delicate multicoloured butterflies slowly changes colours and brings an unusual and surprising relationship between nature and the city. I like especially the butterflies which moves in the wind.
I am sure these installations will brighten your night. In additional, there is performances, a bazaar, fun fair and an Art Zoo. It is not easy to walk at a shot to see these installations. Hence, it is better to look at the festive map to plan your trip.
