What to look forward to at the FREE* light festival i Light Marina Bay 2018
Singapore’s iconic Marina Bay welcomes Asia’s leading sustainable light art festival, i Light Marina Bay from now until 1 April 2018. It’s totally sustainable, as energy saving lighting or environmentally friendly materials are used. Beyond the spectacular showcase of 22 enthralling light art installations dotting the CBD, the festival will also feature an exciting line-up of programmes and activities for everyone. From music performances, an interactive art inflatable park, a carnival, to outdoor drinking and dining options, here’s what to look forward to at the light festival.
i Light Marina Bay Highlights
Passage by Serge Maheu (Canada) is an immersive piece of artwork where you can go through a tunnel of spinning light. The tunnel activates with movement and there are light animations and sounds when you walk along it. Get your little ones to walk from one end to the other for some great Instagrammable shots!
Octopoda by Amigo & Amigo (Australia) is a fun interactive light installation that the kids will love. Featuring eight “tentacle drums”, each activates a great display of colour and light animating the Octopoda’s musical mind. The more you bang, the more colour you generate!
This super cool installation reacts with sound! The more sound you generate – go on, shout, sing, hum or talk – the more the MailboX will respond with varying visuals of colour and emojis. Parents can even tweet a message to #ilightmarinabay and your message will appear on the MailboX. MailboX is by Christopher Simpson, Isabella Bain, Khanh Nguyen, James Rotanson, Anthony Zeater & Steven Bai from Australia.
