Look out for an iridescent passageway, as well as a huge pulsating heart installation
Come Friday March 9, Asia's leading sustainable light art festival i Light Marina Bay will return to light up the bay area with 22 enthralling light installations showcased around the Marina Bay waterfront and the Esplanade Park. A myriad of activities will also complement the light installations at not one, but four main festival hubs, namely the Art-Zoo Inflatable Park at The Float, GastroBeats at The Promontory, the Prudential Marina Bay Carnival at the Bayfront Event Space, and the ILLUMI Bar at the Marina Bay Sands Event Plaza.
Expect a series of exciting line-ups (some of which charges may apply) from family-bonding games, music performances to art workshops. The light installations are entirely free though, and here are five Insta-worthy highlights we think you shouldn't miss:
5. MailboX By Christopher Simpson, Isabella Bain, Khanh Nguyen, James Rotanson, Anthony Zeater & Steven Bai (Australia)
When was the last time you dropped a letter into an actual mailbox? MailboX was built to inspire individuals to more positively connected through verbal and written conversation. As the modern-day equivalent of a letter is most probably digital messaging, participants are encouraged to interact with this installation by sending a tweet with the hashtag #ilightmarinabay. The message will be displayed on the mailbox in real time. Apart from tweets, the mailbox also interacts with the audience through sound. Try making some funny noises and see what emojis appear!
i Light Marina Bay happens from 9 March to 1 April 2018.
