‘i Light’ highlights
Asia’s leading sustainable light festival returns to Singapore’s Marina Bay from 3 to 26 June 2022 with 20 captivating light art installations that aim to spark fresh perspectives on the environment and world around us.
The light art installations are designed with energy-saving lights and recycled or environmentally-friendly materials. They serve as reminders to festival-goers to adopt sustainable habits in their everyday lives. The festival will also offer an exciting line-up of programmes that will add to the vibrancy of the area while also encouraging conversations on sustainability.
This 8th edition of the festival is announced to be largely violet-themed, featuring works submitted from both local and international artists. Their creative interpretations of topics aim to encourage conversations about our lifestyles and consumption behaviour to build a more sustainable future.
Created by Singaporean artist, Ping Lim, and her American collaborator, Ian Grossberg, this installation is inspired by the scenes of housing estates in Singapore and captures vignettes of private moments that tell a story of people’s lives when they were confined to their homes during the pandemic.
Apart from the artworks, the festival will also feature a series of other complementary programmes above the Marina Bay waterbody at the Lower Boardwalk. There will be five unique zones with immersive features such as holographic projections, illuminated motion-capture graphics and shadows, and light beams that replicate a mystical forest.
The return of i Light Singapore will bring back buzz and vibrancy to the city centre, as Singapore progressively eases safe management measures and moves towards living with COVID-19.
