i Light Marina Bay

P1050678

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).

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! 😛
