I Light Marina Bay 2012: Promoting Sustainability in a Celebration of Lights
The I Light Marina Bay 2012 is coming soon to Singapore’s Marina Bay district and this is one event that you have just got to bring your family to. The event, Asia’s first and only sustainable light art festival was first held from 15 October to 7 November in 2010. The festival’s debut was an epic success, attracting more than 433,000 visitors during a three-week period, with about 71, 031 of them being international visitors.
This time round, the I Light Marina Bay 2012 will be held from 9 March to 1 April 2012. There will be 31 different light installations demonstrating energy conservation and sustainability through various creative and artistic ways, along with numerous events, performances and workshops taking place during the festival, especially in the weekends.
Foxysales picks out five of the light installations, scattered all around Marina Bay that you have just got to see up close, in person.
1) Key Frames at the Seating Gallery
Start your I Light Marina Bay tour from the The Float@Marina Bay. Key Frames was originally commissioned for the Fête des Lumières in Lyon, France. This wonderful artwork will now be displayed at I Light Marina Bay 2012. Key Frames uses LED light tubes to form a display of twenty static stick figures. Coupled with an electrifying soundtrack, the lights create a choreographed performance which elicits a celebratory mood among visitors.
2) Garden of Light at the ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands
Take a walk along the Helix Bridge to get to Marina Bay Sands where you will be greeted by the architectural wonder of the ArtScience Museum. Garden of Light is an aspiring projection on the surface of the ArtScience Museum at Marina Bay Sands, using a variety of sound and light effects narrate a story about environmental sustainability and emphasise the wonders of our natural world. The projections creates an amazing effect that can be viewed from several spots throughout Marina Bay.
3) FLOW at the Waterfront Promenade at Marina Bay Sands
Stroll along the vicinity of Marina Bay Sands to view the other light exhibits such as FLOW, located at the Waterfront Promenade. FLOW is made up of a series of vertical axis wind turbines linked to built-in energy-efficient LEDs. Designed to harness wind energy to generate light, visitors can also turn the turbines by hand, converting kinetic energy to light. Besides that, FLOW uses solar panels as an energy source as well.
4) Bibigloo at The Promontory@Marina Bay
Moving away from the Marina Bay Sands, make a stop at The Promontory, where the brightly-coloured Bibigloo awaits you. Quoted by its creator, Bibigloo is an “architectural postmodernist Inuit concept”. Incorporating 250 jerry cans, Bibigloo is your modern image for the conventional ice igloo. With a delightful combination of design and light installation, it manages to raise awareness about global warming and melting ice-caps.
5) Light of the Merlion at Merlion Park
Round up your I Light trail with a trip to the Merlion Park. Light of the Merlion pays tribute to the Merlion, which was inaugurated in 1972. A symbol of light celebration and relating to the festival theme of “Light Meets Asia”, Light of the Merlion creates a memorable experience through light projection over the surface of the sculpture.
I Light Marina Bay 2012 is a perfect getaway for the family to experience the excitement of the Marina Bay area. With plenty of other activities in line with the festival, as well as the restaurants and cafes along the way, this will be an experience that the family can enjoy. Not to mention all the interesting photos that you can take! So enjoy yourselves at the I Light festival : )
