If you’ve been wondering what there is to do in the month of June, here’s a little hint for you — chances are you’ve been to (or at least heard of) previous editions of this famous light installation. Yes, it’s i Light Singapore 2023! From 1 to 25 June 2023, Marina Bay will be illuminated yet again with stunning show-stoppers. This time, the event will also extend to South Beach and Millenia Walk. Fancy.
Without further ado, let’s get right to what you can expect this time round. This year’s theme is A New Wave, so you’ll find a lot of blue hues that’ll invite you to reflect on sustainability and our natural environment via immersive light art installations and interactive programmes.
Be sure to check out Glacier Dreams, which features real-life glacier images that have been transformed into AI-based multi-sensory narratives. The installation brings AI and human creativity together, and is aimed at raising awareness for climate change and rising sea levels.
Of course, you definitely can’t miss the installations by local teams and artists — think Blumiwave, Bleached, Block Party, and more.
At Block Party, you’ll be able to view our ever-so-familiar HDB buildings in a whole new light. The structures will actually react to movement prompts from visitors, so you can actually influence the way the buildings move with your own actions. Plus, gardens will also spontaneously bloom over the facades — how pretty is that?
If you’re in the mood for some tunes, head over to Trumpet Flowers. This immersive jungle of light, colour, and sound allows you to control the towering musical and light instruments using interactive keys. If you’re lucky enough, you might even get to catch these larger-than-life flowers playing a specially commissioned musical score!
Love being able to add your own touch to installations? Aquatics by Berlin-based artist Philipp Artus has got you covered. This interactive animation depicts sea creatures swimming around the vast blue ocean, and you’ll be able to design your own creatures and add them to the underwater world using a tablet.
While the aforementioned installations are all free to view, you can also enter the world of Lightwave: Turning the Tide for just an additional S$5. This new immersive experience at The Promontory has three chapters of compelling light displays that encourage visitors to contemplate the repercussions of human actions on the environment, and reflect on how they can make a change to turn the tide (and also, it’s a great spot for your next IG-worthy photo).
I don’t know about you, but it sounds like we’re in for a treat. Don’t forget to grab your friends and families for an enlightening experience!
