City Gazing Singapore by VOUW

Suspended over The [email protected] Bay, this work showcases the dynamic city of Singapore as if one would fly over it by night, with all street lights, homes and roads lit up.

Location: The Lawn @ Marina Bay

Lighthouse of Time by Danny Rose (France)

The façade of ArtScience Museum is transformed into a lighthouse with dancing lights, orchestrating a spectrum of emotions in viewers.

Inspired by stories of Singaporeans through the age of city building, an impression of Singapore’s future skyline is created using humble clothes pegs.

Location: Marina Bay lower boardwalk

Sails Aloft by Biangle Studio (Estonia)

Inspired by the original sampan panjang of the Orang Laut and by its later racing variations, Sails Aloft is a holographic art installation that creates a snapshot of a 19th century sailboat race in the region.

Shades of Temporality by SWEATSHOPPE – Blake Shaw and Bruno Levy (USA)

“Paint” videos, in real time, onto walls with this interactive graffiti installation.

Squiggle by Angus Muir (New Zealand)

A twisting mess of digital neon tubes fill The Promontory with delightful colours; an abstract reflection of this multi-cultural world we live in.

Location: The Promontory @ Marina Bay

Constructive Interference by Michelle Gouw, Nur Fadilah Binte Nordin, Ian Soon Wen, Tan Zhi Wei and Hendriko Teguh from SUTD

Moments of unpredictability in human interaction are captured as an array of light and colours converges towards the centre in a wave-like form.

Location: North Boat Quay

Keys of Light by Mr.Beam

Playing the piano reveals captivating graphic compositions inspired by Singapore’s architectural icons. With different notes being played on the piano, every player creates a unique visual outcome, leaving no performance the same.

Location: Raffles Terrace at Fort Canning Park

Shadow Exposed by Judy Suh and Edward Yang (USA)

Shadow Exposed plays with the nature of projections being both moving images and a source of light. Depending on where the visitor stands, his/her shadow will reveal different layers that offer a glimpse into Singapore’s history and its evolution.

Location: Mist Walk (next to Red Dot Design Museum)

DUNE by Daan Roosegaarde (The Netherlands)

An interactive landscape of light, DUNE brightens according to the motions and touch of passing visitors, enhancing social interactions between themselves and the landscape.

Location: Lotus Pond at ArtScience Museum

The Rainbow Connection by Yun (Singapore)

Solar-powered works of art from upcycled cookie containers

Made with upcycled cookie jars and co-created with the community, witness an array of solar light modules suspended to form a shifting, kaleidoscopic projection on the ground, exploring the fantastical dreamscape of the deep sea, the woods and the clouds.

Time Traveller by Eko Prawoto (Indonesia)

Situated between One Fullerton – a result of development of the new city and Clifford Pier – the old landing point for travellers who arrived in Singapore via sea, Time Traveller stands tall between the old and the new as a bridge between generations.

Location: Clifford Square

Flower Clock by Guo Qian Ling, Lee Jian Wen, Liao Qing Shuang, Song Le Jing and You Fan Zhou from Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts (China)

Inspired by the relationship between blooming flowers and time, this delightful artwork rotates to simulate the movement of a clock.

The Cat in the Garden by Loom Prod (France)

The Cat in the Garden transforms the Merlion to reveal scenes of nature together with snippets of Singapore’s daily life.

Location: Merlion Park

With A View by Superiore Design Associates – Ryan Linardy and Lim Cheng Jun (Singapore)

Using Singapore’s quintessential architectural icon – a shophouse window and a material of modern architecture – mirrors, With a View creates a series of reflections that recede into an infinite distance.

Location: River Promenade along Parliament House

Good Fortune by Olga Grybowicz and Kasper Hein (Poland)

Good Fortune is a visualisation of rain inspired by emotions it causes in different cultures, creating a moment of reflection in the viewers.

Cosmic Web by Foo Hui Wen, Lim Yu Zhi and R.Yashini D/O Renganathan from LASALLE College of the Arts (Singapore)
