Singapore holds sustainable light art festival in public spaces


09:55, March 08, 2012

SINGAPORE, March 7 (Xinhua) -- More than 30 environmentally sustainable light art installations were put in the waterfront public space around the Marina Bay in the central business district of Singapore for an art festival, organizers said on Wednesday.

The "i Light Marina Bay 2012" will be open to the public for free from March 9 to April 1, with free guided tours led by student volunteers. It features 31 art installations by artists from Asia and elsewhere.

Complementary programs such as carnivals, free outdoor movie screenings, roving performances, guided tours, talks and workshops will also be held, said the Urban Redevelopment Authority, which organized the event with festival direction by Smart Light, a not- for-profit organization established in 2010 to develop urban lighting festivals that promote energy efficiency while creating family-friendly outdoor light art installations in the public space.

One of the light art installations, known as Garden of Light, is an animated projection using three-dimensional digital mapping technology to create the impression of a garden's journey through a single day.

The vivid images of butterflies and the spectacular flowers and plants projected onto the facade of the Marina Bay Sands ArtScience Museum amazed journalists at the media preview on Wednesday.

Adrian Goh, managing director of the company Hexogon Solution, said the artists spent two months to create the work.
