I like i Light Marina Bay 2017

It is that time of the year again for the Marina Bay area to be decked with art installations that go live during the evenings. You are in for a treat! It is Asia's leading sustainable light art festival.

We had a preview of the art installations that would go live this weekend from 3-26th March 2017 at the Marina Bay Waterfront 7.30 to 11pm and hours are extended to midnight on Friday and Saturday nights. Admission is free but charges apply for some attractions.

Of all the art installations, let's start with the one I find the most photo-worthy. If you want to take silhouette shots, this will be the installation that's perfect for that.

Designed by Katarzyna Malejka and Joachim Sługocki from Poland, Horizontal Interference is formed by a colourful cord construction which connects the trees in a simple manner. It is really simple, wires connected in a linear way but when the wind blows and they start shaking, that is an image you want to witness in person.

There are other cool installations such as this one that looks like a replica of the Northern lights. The best thing about this one is that there is no need to queue to appreciate or interact with it, you can just take a few glances at it as you stroll down the Marina Bay promenade. Set against the cityscape, it is one view that you will never get elsewhere. 

If you are looking to revisit your childhood, look at these pieces of work that are created with that in mind.

How would you draw a house when you were a child? Home by Anna Galas, Maciej Slominski and Aleksander Sawick brings that sketch to life. Definitely a fun piece of art to interact with!

How about having your face appear on a baby's body? Take some humorous shots of this as your friends check out how they look on this installation.

If you are looking for a place to hang out with some friends snacking on finger food and listening to bands play, head over to the Gastrobeats at the Bayfront event space right outside the Marina Bay Sands. Bands such as the Scarlet Avenue, THELIONCITYBOY and Disco Hue will be playing.

Other installations you want to check out will be: 

Moonflower. Solar powered flowers that glow in the dark, so pretty!

The Colorful Garden of Light. Watch as the colours change. 

The Urchin. It was not ready when we visited it but what an amazing look it will be when it is finally suspended midair. 

Look out for the projections on the Singapore Art Museum and the Merlion:

Families with kids should head over to the Art Zoo, full of balloon animals that your kids will love. They are bound to have a good time!

Have fun exploring the Marina Bay Promenade this weekend! Expect the crowd but there is really plenty to see and interact with.
