i Light Singapore is back for 2019, and it’s titled i Light Singapore – Bicentennial, a celebration that commemorates the 200th year of Sir Stamford Raffles founding of modern Singapore. The theme, “Bridges of Time”, invites visitors to reflect on the history and growth of Singapore, and the nation’s connection with the world in the last 700 years.
The seventh edition of i Light Singapore promises to be larger than before. Held between 28 Jan 2019 and 24 Feb 2019, the festival will go beyond Marina Bay. You can look forward to sustainable light art installations in the Civic District, Singapore River, and Raffles Terrace at Fort Canning.
There are several installations that you should look out for:
- City Gazing Singapore by Dutch artists Mingus Vogel and Justus Bruns: This is one of the international headliners that you shouldn’t miss. (See image above) It’s a hanging installation that features the map of Singapore at The Lawn@Marina Bay: This installation is presented to show how Singapore has grown over time
- The Rainbow Connection: An art installation by Yun, a Singaporean industrial designer, which features solar light modules in upcycled cookie containers co-created by members of the public
Admission is free and the installations will be available for viewing and photo-taking from 7.30pm to 11pm on Sundays to Thursdays and from 7.30pm to 12am on Fridays to Saturdays.
