The Most Instagrammable Art Installations At i Light Marina Bay 2018

#1: The Butterfly Effect by The Caterpillars (Singapore)
In a world on the brink of ecological catastrophe, the sense of urgency is incomparable to the magnitude of the problem, and it is important to know that environmental protection is not the responsibility of an establishment, but of the individual. The Butterfly Effect utilises drums and a field of lights to represent this reassertion for change. As each drum is struck, a ripple of light propagates across the field. #2: Light Breeze By Lasalle College of the Arts (Singapore)
Inspired by the gentle sways of the cogon grass, also known as the lalang plant, this is a tribute to the overlooked and diminishing flora and fauna within Singapore’s ever urbanising landscape. The installation emphasises the gentle swaying motion of the cogon grass through the use of lights. It also pays tribute to the nostalgic nature of the past through the creation of a meditative installation. #3: Dreamscape by Magdalena Radziszewska (Poland)
This installation is made out of numerous giant orchids on the Anderson Bridge and is also covered with delicate lights. It aims to bring the public through a world of dreams and fantasies, where they can experience the visions of their childhood imagination. #4: Chandelier of Spirits by Living Spirits (Thailand)
As a symbol of the hardworking, can-do spirit of Singaporeans, cold brew coffee bottles from Chye Seng Huat were collected to create this installation, which lights up the city after sunset. Not only does it shine brighter when there are more people surrounding it, but it also creates harmonious chime sounds when the wind blows. #5: Elements of Life by Flex Chew (Malaysia)
This is centered around the basic elements of the universe: water, earth, air and fire. It brings the audience through a journey from space to earth and shows how simple life starts with a combination of these elements, and how each relates to one another, from its simplest form to the present and future. #6: Octopoda by Amigo and Amigo (Australia)
This is an interactive light installation that invites audiences to become part of its tentacle percussion ensemble. Featuring eight tentacle drums, each activates a unique display of colour and light animating the Octopoda’s musical mind. When all eight drums are playing together, Octopoda will dazzle audiences with his mechanical moves and rhythmic light display. #7: With Love... by Franck Pelletier(France)
This is a monumental bright red inflatable heart, which has been installed in the heart of the town. This heart takes the pulse of the city by sensing the light, the temperature and the atmospheric pressure. Like this?
