As an official blogger for i Light Marina Bay, I have the opportunity to share with you about how awesome this year’s edition of i Light Marina Bay is!😀 I love creative and colorful things and this year’s installations are really impressive!
The picture you see above shows the colorful installation called ‘The Pool’, by Jen Lewin, a trained architect. This installation is most beautiful when a group of people play with the different pads at the same time. The pads light up in different colors! How gorgeous is this?!
And here are more of my favs:
1.26 by Janet Echelman
Why 1.26? Echelman used laboratory research from NASA and NOAA which documented the effects of the 2010 earthquake in Chile – the historic shock resulted in the shortening of the earth’s day by 1.26 microseconds, thus the installation’s name. The colorful volumetric piece takes the shape of a tsunami sweeping across the ocean.
This piece not only reminds us of today’s ever-changing face of the earth and the effects natural disasters have on people, but it is also a piece that highlights the courage of the survivors and the interconnected populations who are fighting against these effects of climate change in today’s context.
Guardian Angels by Maro Avrabou & Dimitri Xenakis
This installation highlights the role of the human and pays an indirect tribute to gardeners. These watering-lanterns are a gesture of protection to our environment, and also a suggestion to give a second life to an object after use.
CLOUD by Caitlind Brown & Wayne Garrett (Photo: Doug Wong)
This sculpture uses both new and recycled materials. Combining the aesthetic of incandescent light bulbs with the brilliance of energy-efficient bulbs, CLOUD creates a playful commentary on the changing face of sustainability.
A total of 28 light art installations are transforming Marina Bay into one huge public art gallery. Bring your friends and family!
