i Light Marina Bay 2017

i Light Marina Bay 2017 is here again! You will be able to appreciate these light art installations for free (I love free stuff!) from 3rd March 2017 to 26th March 2017, 7.30pm to 11pm daily (extended to 12 midnight on Friday and Saturday) at the Marina Bay waterfront.

Honoured to be invited to the 5th edition of i Light Marina Bay Preview this year and get to preview some of the 20 sustainable light art installations which are based on the theme – “Light & Nature”. This year theme aims to invite the public to consider the relationship of lights with nature and the city.

Some installation which caught my eyes includes:
Horizontal Interference by Katarzyna Malejka & Joachim Slugocki from Poland
I actually got a pre-preview of this simple installation formed by a colorful cord connecting a few trees while I’m was Pokemon hunting at MBS. Love that this simple, ingenious illumination is able to merge the natural and constructed elements, and how it can create a poetic and powerful image when the wind make it moves, not to mention it’s spectacularly beautiful at nightfall!

On top of all these interesting installation, this year, you can have some fun in the experiential inflatable playground with art installation in the setting of a zoological garden – Art-Zoo Inflatable Park!
