Let the light descend upon Marina Bay. You wouldn’t want to miss “I Light Marina Bay” which had been running as one of the most sought-after events in Singapore for the past four years now. Let me give you a quick background what kind of event is this.
It’s officially an exhibition of light and art installations using some materials which can be utilized again or which the exhibitors have already recycled. Utilizing or re-using materials is encouraged in this event because one of its themes is that it should supposed to be sustainable.
Well, let me tell you why you should list this event as one of your must-see events in Singapore every year. If you were only there to have seen it with your very own two eyes, you would have given this even a two thumbs up.
One of the most stunning light and art installations that graced the event is that of Japan’s exhibition entitled “What a Loving and Beautiful World” and well Japan went over the top and showed off an absolute spectacle by wowing the crowd using ArtScience Museum in Marina Bay Sands as an enormous white screen to project ironically surreal and at the same time realistic images.
This is an interactive light and art installation because everyone can try it by just using their smartphones and swiping a Chinese character to their liking and in turn an image is projected on the outermost part lotus-like building of ArtScience Museum in Marina Bay Sands. It is definitely one of the best light and art installations ever.
What is amazing about it is one, it’s interactive and two, it is sending positive images to the people who were actually there to witness it. Some of them saw vivid 3D images of butterflies flipping their wings in a multi-colored background.
A relaxing and soothing music is also played to enhance the mood and everyone feels like they are in their own happy places. This light art installation does actually literally and figuratively does its job very well. How, if you may asked? Well, it will certainly light or brighten up anyone who had a long and tiring day.
Imagine how well this light and art installation is magnificently set up this year. I couldn’t help wondering that Japan which is only one of the countries who were privileged to display their light and art installation this year would definitely step up their game and leave us wanting for more.
