i Light Marina Bay 2017 runs from 3 to 26 March 2017 and for the first time, features three themed festival hubs that give the event a festive atmosphere and experience. Jien and I were privileged to be a part of i Lights Marina Bay this year, where more than 20 sustainable light art installations deck the Marina Bay waterfront.

By night time, the whole of Marina Bay is beautifully lit and worthy of a photo-op. The light art installations are designed with energy-saving lighting and environmentally friendly materials – an effort by Marina Bay to ensure a sustainable precinct and to serve as a reminder to the general public to adopt sustainable habits in their everyday lives.

Horizontal Interference

We started our tour from Mist Walk/Lower Promenade where installations like The Urchin, Horizontal Interference and Home are located. As you approach Marina Bay City Gallery, you’ll be greeted with Northern Lights – an art piece inspired by the experience of the aurora borealis (a poetic natural light phenomenon that occurs in the sky of the northern hemisphere).

Moon Flower

i Light You So Much is a popular feature at The Promontory where bamboos are used to create this installation which moves in reaction to the wind and visualises this energy in the presence of light. It was raining prior to i Light Marina Bay but that didn’t deter visitors from checking out Moon Flower. This fascinating display of glow in the dark flowers – powered by solar powered LED – brings the garden of darkness to life. After i Light Marina Bay 2017, these flowers will be given a new lease of life in people’s gardens as its modular and wireless nature allows it to function on its own.

Ocean Pavilion

We capped of our i Light Marina Bay tour at Merlion Park, were The Body of the Sea installation was located. Immerse yourself in the multimedia installation on the Merlion, creating a flowing and extraordinary dress from successive waves of seawater. This flow of colours, sound and images give shape to the Soul of the Sea.

Expect the i Light Marina Bay tour to last for 2 hours or so, as there are many more installations to admire around the waterfront. I know of some who split their tour into two days so they can fully immerse themselves in the beauty of these light installations.
