Passed by Esplanade and happened to see “i Light Marina Bay” ( 照亮滨海湾), – Asia’s First Sustainable Light Art Festival, which is held from 15th October to 7th November 2010 from 7.30pm onwards to midnight. The entry is free and there are 26 light artworks along 3.5km of Marina Bay. I only checked out a few and the above is exhibit 13 – Jellight by Pascal Petitjean & Aamer Taher (Singapore).
Exhibit 12 – Animal Tree by Pitupong Chaowakul (Thailand). If you look closely, the lamp actually consists of orange teddy bears!
Night scene of Esplanade Bridge with the skyscrapers in the background.
Exhibit 11 – Touch. Do Not Please The Work Of Art by Michael Lee (Singapore) & Cornelia Erdmann (Hong Kong). Strong lights are shone frequently at the glow-in-the-dark text.
This will be what you can see after the lights are off – Touch. Do Not Please The Work Of Art.
From the Esplanade Bridge, scene of Esplanade and surrounding buildings.
Exhibit 9 – Flora Magica by Studio KYbra (Australia & Germany).
Exhibit 7 – The Whirlpool by Martin Klaasen, Shane Richardson and Pascal Petitjean (Singapore & Australia).
Exhibit 8 – The Living! Project by Sun Yu Li, Allan Lim, Kenny Eng (Singapore). One of my personal favorites!
Look closely – it’s made from Starbucks used plastic cups!
And also used mineral water bottles, which is made into fan-like shape and it spins when the wind blows!
Exhibit 6 – C/Ɔ by Angela Chong (Singapore). I love this!
It’s actually a functional seating area made from acrylic!
The seat changes colors too! Nice!
Exhibit 5 – Singapora-Flora by Warren Langley (Australia).
I didn’t finish visiting the whole of the light artworks at Marina Bay, think I only went through a few. For those interested, you may want to visit “i Light Marina Bay” webby to find out the suggested walk routes. If you can take some time to leisurely walk 3.5 km around Marina Bay, you will be able to complete the 26 light artworks. It’s getting late and I going home!
